Daisy Latham (UK)
Daisy Latham recently graduated from Camberwell College of Arts, where she studied BA Fine Art Drawing.
Her practice whilst as a student explored a huge variety of subjects and form. She used drawing and writing as a space to explore narrative and imagination, these works juxtaposed masculinity and femininity, nurture and destruction, presence and absence. She would translate these questions up off the paper and into the real. Using materials like Jesmonite plaster, steel and found objects she'd form huge 10 meter high drawing machines, Gravity defying arcs and effeminate armour.
For her degree show and in the months since graduating Daisy has focused her practice on exploring gender and the performative nature of gender. To explore these topics her work has been centred around a silicone muse that she constructs in clay then casts in rubber. She has performed for camera (selfies and shoots) and performed dances and live music (clarinet playing) in clubs and student bars around London, all whilst wearing this silicone muse.
