Biography

Lily Kemp (b. 1997, UK ) explores alternative narratives around how women's bodies are portrayed/consumed in Western art history and visual culture through her practice, in particular in response to how women's bodies are sexualised in the media and how women of colour are often sexualised through a racialized lense that is exoticizing, fetishizing and othering. Collage plays a central role in her art practice as the women are sourced from mass media. Lily is interested in what happens when you repurpose found images - taking the images of women from fashion magazines and re-representing them in often agricultural/industrial work context. Lily lives and works in London, UK.
