About: 

Sophie Huckfield (she/they) is a cross disciplinary artist and researcher with a background in arts, design and engineering, based between Walsall and London, UK.

Their research-based practice is political, collaborative and combines social engagement to challenge and repurpose the dominant tools and narratives used to frame specific stories, histories, futures and experiences. Which connect to themes around work, technology, craft, social-class, intersectional feminism and (de)industrialisation. When developing work they incorporate layering and cutting as a conceptual and aesthetic tool, drawing on archival and research materials to develop multidisciplinary works which move between video, sculpture, installations and writings.

Their practice is collaborative and she works with a range of organisations and individuals across disciplines to meditate upon the way we think about the world shaped by the tools at our disposal.
