Ismene King is a London-based artist from Athens, currently pursuing an MFA in Sculpture at the Slade School of Fine Arts. Her current practice moves mainly across disciplines of sculpture, installation, performance and textile. Through her work, she explores the experience of inhabiting a body; human/non-human/imaginary. The body as tool, membrane, obstacle, receptor and point of contact with the world. Focus is placed on the collection of materials/objects and the making process itself, which often becomes almost performative and ritualistic.
Ismene has showcased work in Greece, Cyprus and the UK, in various group shows and two personal exhibitions, as well as in New Delhi, during a recent residency, while two of her earlier works currently belong to a permanent collection in Athens.
