Dr Linda Aloysius
Fine Art Programme; Associate Lecturer
I am a sculptor and researcher currently working at the cross-over between sculpture, site and document. I build 'figurative' sculptures from found object fragments. These form my ongoing series New Model Army, which I exhibit in groups/constellations and individually, in a variety of spaces. I also photograph my sculptures in selected sites in London, forming sculptural - photographic documents. Currently, I am working on a one year project using the Ryder Project Space at APT Gallery, Deptford. This will culminate in a solo exhibition in APT gallery in April 2018.
My works respond to my PhD research (Goldsmiths). My research focuses on how women's art practices generate productive mimesis and, in so doing, encourage overcoming of inequalities caused by patriarchal capitalism.
Previous exhibitions have included at V22, London (2016), Women's Art Library, London (2016), Deptford Lounge, London (2015), Fold Gallery, London (2011), APT, London (2011), Sir John Soanes Museum (2010), CCCB, Barcelona (2009), Gohan-Sabuk Art Village, South Korea (2009) and Zabludowicz Collection, London (2008).
As researcher, I convene and present at conferences, symposia and panels in London and internationally, including at MAAT, Lisbon (2017), Lisbon University (2016), Goldsmiths College (2016, 2015, 2010), University of Oxford (2011), Freie University, Berlin (2008), Jerwood Space, London (2008). Published articles and works include in peer-reviewed journal 'Museological Review' (2016) and in 'In Search of The Real George Elliot', edited by Roxy Walsh (2005).
