Paloma Proudfoot

Paloma Proudfoot employs sculpture, clothes-making, text, and performance to intertwine personal narratives, historical allusions, and contemporary cultural commentary. Seeking to articulate amorphous feelings such as shame, grief and strength, she delves into the metaphorical and narrative potential of materials. In addition to her individual practice, Proudfoot collaborates with various artists and groups, including artist and choreographer Aniela Piasecka and the performance ensemble ‚Stasis‘.

Paloma Proudfoot received a BA in Sculpture from the Edinburgh College of Art and an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art and has undertaken residencies at Tramway, Glasgow (with Piasecka); Moly Sabata, France; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (with Stasis) and the Thun Ceramic Residency, Italy.

Proudfoot’s works are currently on view at the exhibition The Infinite Woman, Fondation Carmignac, Hyères, FR until November 03, 2024. Her works will also be on display in a solo show at The Lowry, Manchester, UK.

Selected solo exhibitions include: The Voice of The Play, The Approach, London (2024); The Three Living and The Three Dead, Soy Capitan, Berlin (2023); The Memory Theatre, Bosse and Baum, London (2022) and Curing, Sans Titre, Paris (2019). Recent group exhibitions include: Unruly Bodies, Goldsmiths CCA (2023); Bold Tendencies, London (2022); Off the beaten track, KIT – Kunst im Tunnel, Düsseldorf (2022); Performance dans L’Académie des Mutantes (with Stasis), CAPC, Musée d‘art Contemporain de Bordeaux, France (2022); Attitudes of the Unruly, Den Frie, Copenhagen (2021); Art by post, Southbank Centre, London (2021) and A Vague Anxiety, at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2019).
