Paloma Proudfoot(b.1992, London, UK) is a London-based artist who received an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London in 2017 after studying at Edinburgh College of Art. Proudfoot’s practice includes a variety of media, ranging from sculpture to performance. Textile and organic matter, such as clay, are common materials appearing in her body of work, seemingly playful but at the same time reflecting and discussing current topics of her own generation. As well as her solo sculptural practice, Proudfoot is co-director of the performance group Stasis and co-founder of the Proudick platform, which is at once an artists’ collective, a project space and a place for exchanging ideas and learning about ceramics. Recent solo and two-person exhibitions include: ‘CURING’, Sans Titre, Paris (2019); ‘A History of Scissors’, Soy Capitan, Berlin (2019); ‘A Quick Descent’ Art Berlin Fair with Soy Capitan, Berlin (2018); ‘The Detachable Head Serves as a Cup’, Cob Gallery, London (2018); ‘PROUDICK’ (with Lindsey Mendick), Hannah Barry Gallery, London (2018); ‘The Clean Carcass of the Host’ (with George Rouy for Condo Mexico), Marso Galeria, Mexico City (2018); ‘The Thinking Business’ (with Rebecca Ounstead), The Royal Standard, Liverpool (2017); and ‘There’s One Missing From Your Bunch’, May Projects, London (2016).
