Lucie Winterson lives and works in east London. She works from her studio in Hackney and in the landscape.
She is currently researching for her PhD: “Navigating nature/human relations in the ecological crisis through art practice”, at the University of the Arts, London. She has a special focus on immersive encounters and poetic engagement with the natural world: “To imagine a space of mutuality where the human and more than human world entangle and express themselves in a myriad of ways including the poetic”
Her work is concerned with reconfiguring our links to the vegetal, the world itself and the life force of trees and plants. The intent is to re-imagine ways to engage with Nature (human and more than human) in the context of what is now being described as the era of the Symbiocene, the trend away from the ecocidal to the symbiotic.
