A British artist living and working in Berlin since 1995, Lucy Powell has an interdisciplinary practice centered around scientific and philosophical perspectives on animal behavior and cognition and the implications of the anthropomorphic gaze. The inspiration for her work is the tantalizing nature of inquiry that ultimately takes place across an abyss of non-comprehension. She has recently started a moveable monthly salon with the aim of facilitating conversation and collaboration between artists and scientists.
During the Summer Session 2015, Lucy Powell and Sara Barnes by way of their joing project Satellite Salon, co-organized The ArtScience Slam - inviting over 10 artists and scientists to present their practice in 6 minute Pecha Kucha style presentations.
In 2018, Lucy will lead a walk for IN SEARCH OF THE MIRACULOUS.http://www.lucy-powell.com
