Caroline Wright’s work includes live performance and visual art that is often site-responsive. She works in mediums as diverse as glass and gold as well as the human body. She has made work for cities and rural spaces, for galleries, theatres, churches, on desolate uninhabited islands and for audiences of 100 and of one. She is interested in conceptual archaeology, place and its relationship to human behaviour.
Caroline aims to use art to re-imagine the ordinary and to take an audience to places of the imagination and the extraordinary. Her recent work includes The Do, an interactive performance walk for InSite Arts, Untitled (believe) an installation for Encounters and Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, a live event Cut and Thrust for Late at Tate and Memorial to the Islanders, a triptych of films for Galway Arts Centre. This year her work can be seen at Latitude Festival, Smiths Row Gallery, Aid and Abet Artist led space and as part of Trust New Art at Ham House, Richmond and also in the local press in Manchester and Suffolk with the project Desperately Seeking.
Caroline is a recipient of an Artsadmin bursary and postgraduate course leader and is based at Wysing Arts Centre near Cambridge.
