Luke Pell is an independent artist living in Scotland. Working in and in between spaces of dance, theatre and live art. A maker and curator Luke collaborates with other artists and organisations imagining alternative contexts for performance, participation and discourse that might reveal wisdoms for living.
Fascinated by detail, nuances of time, texture, memory and landscape. Lukes artistic projects take form as intimate encounters; poetic objects, installations and designed environments – site-responsive choreographies – for physical and virtual spaces.
An advocate for alterity in art, Luke’s curatorial projects invite artists and experts from across disciplines to gather together to explore new and existing relationships between words and movement, periphery and community. So as to arrive at new perspectives, articulations and understandings of what is to be in the world, through interdisciplinary collaboration.
Whilst in residence at Metal Peterborough Luke will be researching and developing a new live participatory performance work, underpinned by a body of research that explores touch memory, mapping, landscape and loss.
