Lucy Clout

Lucy Clout is a London based artist working primarily in video. Her practice examines the embodied experience of language, in particular minor-speech (disposable or insignificant), to think about sickness and pleasure. Lucy understands her works as kinds of ‘home movie’ — they are not essays or arguments but collages of tone, building upon deep histories of diaristic, queer, feminist film-making.

Recent solo exhibitions include Humber Street Gallery 2020 and Cubitt Gallery 2019. She was the artist in residence for Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival 2018 and won the Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella award in 2015.

Her videos are distributed by LUX
