Clare Nattress is an artist, educator, writer and curator from York, UK. Her conceptual practice explores scientific discourse, the environment, body, and liveness. Her works encompass live data visualisation, performance, photography, bookmaking, sculpture and installation. Collaboration is a key element in her cross disciplinary work. In 2018 Clare sold all of her possessions and cycled in parts of the globe for a year mainly living in a tent. Cycling has now become a basis for her art making and research.
Clare became a recognised Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) in 2016. She has been lecturing in Art & Design and Graphic Design for the past five years.
With strong interests in curation, Clare has worked as a Co-curator & Writer at Kunsthuis Gallery in Crayke, North Yorkshire. With Curator and Owner Cecile Creemers, they exhibited a large number of shows with artists sourced from all over the world including USA, Australia, Lithuania, Sweden, Spain and South America.
