Information

Veronica Vickery is a visual artist who lives on a boat near Bristol. She is drawn to places and materials that are constantly changing: tidal mudflats, river detritus, floating carcasses and rusty paint-pitted boats. She works between performance, living materials and art objects, and across microscopy, text and painting. Her practice is a response to her immediate experience of living in a fast-flowing river environment and the wider eco/political concerns she finds echoed in the margins between bodies (human and non-human), sites and cultural spaces. She is currently developing a project with scientists exploring aquatic micro-organisms, the carbon cycle and resource extraction funded by the Brigstow Institute (University of Bristol). She is a recipient of a WEVAA R&D bursary (2022).

Previous work includes ‘Vessels, Water, Mud, Care’, a collaborative online screening and discussion (Spike public programme, 2021) and a large-scale installation ‘The Best of Bristol Living’ (Centre of Gravity, 2020). Her work has been included in shows at Tate Exchange (2019), the Pavilion, Hauser & Wirth Somerset (2017) and the survey show Imagined Landscapes, Royal West of England Academy (2016). She holds an art-practice-based PhD in Cultural Geography from University of Exeter (2016) and is an Honorary Research Associate at University of Bristol.
