CHARLOTTE CALLIS

(b.1992, north-west England, UK)

​

Charlotte is a practice based artist and researcher and has been making work since 2015. Her work is interdisciplinary and completely unrestrained, exploring subjects including biopolitics, erotics, online pornography, bodily matter, sexuality, and gender. Charlotte works across performance cultures that include: experimental live art; installation; moving image; and writing to invert, dismantle and reconfigure the body. She is a Masters graduate from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance where she obtained a Distinction in Creative Practice. Since graduating, her work has been presented in shows and venues such as: Duckie, Royal Vauxhall Tavern (2016/17); DINA Venue, Sheffield (2017); Harts Lane Gallery (2017); and Laurie Grove Studios (2015).

​

The performances Charlotte carefully creates are body based and durational, enabling her to create an image that is intimate, unsettling, yet intriguing in order to challenge the viewers perceptions of 'normality'.

​

​In addition to live performance, Charlotte is exploring her practice using other artistic media including monoprinting, sculpture, and painting. Her recent large scale paintings with mixed media attempt to uncover and visualise her potential existence between worlds. The amalgamation of dream, reality and hallucinatory experiences are key themes in Charlotte's paintings.
