Anita Delaney is interested in the operation and exertion of bodies in the performance of life. Affect is important in her work with a particular interest in giving attention to the tender and overlooked. Under a culturally dominant narrative of mastery, she is interested in giving the meager centre stage. Having worked mainly in moving image, her practice is expanding to include sculpture and installation. She intends to use her time at Metal Southend to develop a script for a new moving image work as well as develop drawings and sketches for new sculptural work.
