Victoria Emily Sharples is an artist and PhD candidate at Leeds Beckett University in the Leeds School of Arts. Her doctoral research project, Immaterial performance in lieu of the art object: a practice-based, environmental, research project, meditates on natural phenomena and draws attention, by artistic means, to eco-political concern. Often durational, her practice encompasses time-based performance, video and photography, conceptual scores and events. Informed by eastern and elemental philosophies, her work utilises: sound, slowness and motion to accentuate the effects of human activity.
