Tabatha Andrews is an artist working in sculpture and installation. She is interested in unsettling the hierarchy of our senses, exploring how materials and sound can embody and trigger memory. For this talk Tabatha will show images of recent work and discuss her approach to sculpture and its relationship with performative and participatory practice, with a particular focus on the theme of active listening.
Tabatha has just been granted a Kings College London Innovation funding award for Call and Response, a collaboration with the stem cell scientist Andrea Streit researching communication, memory and hearing loss.
Tabatha Andrews studied at Glasgow School of Art, Slade School of Art and the Skowhegan School of Art, Maine. She was Artist in Residence at Gloucester Cathedral in 2002-3 and has made work for the Forest of Dean Sculpture Trust, the Whipple Museum of Science in Cambridge, the Monument to the Fire of London and many other venues. She is currently an Associate Lecturer at Plymouth University and Falmouth School of Art.
