Michelle Atherton

I am an artist, researcher and academic. My work considers particular moments or sets of conditions in our collective histories. I commonly use a remix aesthetic, incorporating sound, image, text, lighting effects and collaborative strategies to create fragmented narratives as hooks to explore our slippery perceptions of the world. The aim is look again at matters that seem settled, beyond question, but where inherent instability opens into other questions of material states, refusals, politics and new imaginaries.
My work has been supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and shown throughout Europe in galleries, museums, festivals, conferences and via publication. Recent exhibitions include Spor Klübü, Berlin; Autonomy Middlesbrough Art Weekender, UK; Viborg Kunsthal Denmark; Kunstraum Gallery, Linz, Austria; Tatton Park Biennale UK; Kino Babylon, Berlin; Zeppelin Museum, Germany. I live in London and am a Senior Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University, UK.
