by Libby Scarlett
Libby Scarlett (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist and educator. Her practice is interested in the transformative nature of interaction and lived experience. Flaws in communication and encounters are highlighted as sites for potential adjustment or movement. From these, she creates sets of circumstances or boundaries to explore notions of change and growth.
She has exhibited internationally, including at the New York Center for Book Arts, HOME (Manchester) and MAK (Vienna), and attended residencies at Marpha Foundation (Nepal), Ahvaland (Finland), Salzburger Kunstverein (Austria) and Women’s Studio Workshop (USA). Her book works are also held in over 20 collections worldwide, including MoMA, Iraq National Library and PerformIstanbul.
Currently, she teaches as an Associate Lecturer at Manchester School of Art and is studying for an MA in Art and Design in Education at UCL.
