Mathilda is an artist and writer who lives and works in North London, having graduated from Chelsea Art College in 2011 and is currently studying for an MA at the Royal College of Art. She has previously been published in Dream Catcher magazine and has recently exhibited at the White Room Gallery Sheffield as well as having artwork on the cover of the anthology, Words for the Wild.
Mathilda is currently working around the agency of objects as well as the distance between materiality and sound. Placing the object in a space outside of visual physicality into a form where it can be seen by more than the eye. Working with both sound and writing to investigate the relationship between sound’s lack of physicality and writing’s conceptually demanding yet visually reductive form.
Focussed on communication disruptions and methods, Mathilda’s practice utilities a multitude of medias including sound, water, weaving and writing. Subtle marks and signs are manipulated, pointing to the power inherit in subtlety; conveying ideas of invisibility and what it means to have a voice in the current political climate.
