About the curator

Harriet Plewis is a London based artist. Her activity is rooted in moving image, performance and the contexts of feminist pedagogies. Plewis’s projects are concerned with the conditions for co-creation and often draw on sound, movement, interior design, rehearsal techniques and philosophical writings. She facilitates devised exhibitions and film works and is currently developing a practice of ‘expanded reading’ wherein the way in which textual knowledges are exchanged can be coaxed beyond a relationship between the lone eye and the page.
