Lisa Skuret is a London based artist and writer. One of her central concerns is knowledge production, and her practice combines ideas and methods from various disciplines, often through live work. Text and expanded writing techniques – including sound, voice, and physical action, are components of both live and installed work in which she creates performative responses to institutions, objects and everyday spaces.
In 2014-15, Skuret received an Arts Council England award for speculative project Communal Materials; Or, Evolution Isn’t Fast Enough. Recent work as part of this project includes A Call from the Library; a group exercise in ‘listening to’ and ‘playing’ a former public library as a building, concept and utopian project in which the ‘score’ was the former public library itself.
Skuret works both independently and collectively with international art research groups such as Vision Forum (Linköpings University, Sweden). Recent performances, workshops, and exhibitions have taken place at a former library in East London; Museum of Work, Sweden; Parasol Unit, London; Spike Island, Bristol; David Roberts Art Foundation (DRAF), London; and MoMA PS1, New York.
