Besides her solo sculptural practice, Proudfoot is co-director of the performance group Stasis, one half of PROUDICK (with Lindsey Mendick) as well as Proudfoot and Piasecka (with Aniela Piasecka).
Proudfoot’s practice includes a variety of media, ranging from (ceramic) sculptures to (group) performances. Textile and organic matter are common materials appearing in her body of work, seeming playful but at the same time reflecting and discussing current topics of her own generation.
