Victoria Bone

Bone is investigating repetitive patterns of movement and ceremonial costume. Based on the history of enforced labor and daily routines in C-Wing Bone plans to map a pathway of movement and walk it repeatedly at set times of day. While walking, Bone will explore ways of marking, space, movement, and time through knotting, binding, unraveling, scratching, and indenting. Reinterpreting restrictions placed on women's bodies is a key area of Bone’s work. Bone is looking at historical apparatus and clothing used to mute and impede women. Bone intends to make iterations of these devices to wear as a ritual dress on my daily walks.

 

Biography

Bone is a Multimedia artist and Live Art is at the center of my practice. Bone has both BA (Hons), Chelsea school of art, and MA, Bath Spa University in Fine Art.

 

Bone looks at the paradox in themes such as submission and control, strength and vulnerability, and considers the social and economic restraints placed on the female body. Bone’s work involves physically exploring and responding to materials that embody Bone’s themes, from this she creates items to move in, sometimes on the edge of wearability. The items are influenced by ceremonial costume and ritual, and the movement by simple domestic and historical actions.
