Sharon Kivland is an artist and writer working in London and France. Reader in Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University, she is also a Research Associate of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research, London, and editor of the journal Transmission Annual. She is a keen reader, considering what is put at stake at the intersection of art, psychoanalysis, and politics. She has described her practice is one of stupid refinement, trapped in archives, libraries, the arcades, and the intersection of public political action and private subjectivity. For some years she has been following Sigmund Freud on holiday, rewriting Zola’s novel Nana, and assembling a number of (shall we say) private collections. Her work is represented by DOMOBAAL, London, Galerie Bugdahn und Kaimer, Düsseldorf, Galerie des petits carreaux, Paris, and Johan Deumens Gallery, Amsterdam.
