Claire Hooper (artist)

Claire Hooper (born London 1978) is a British artist based in London.

Career

Hooper's recent work has been concerned with Greek mythology, in particular the way in which Hesiod's Theogony gives an anthropomorphic familial relation to matter and experience. Her practice touches on perception and experience in narrative, and how one immerses oneself in reading or watching, and in particular she has been interested in descriptions of interior spaces and how this relates to the interiority of fantasy.


Exhibitions

Hooper has shown in Europe and abroad, including recent shows at Lothringer 13, Munich; MUMOK, Vienna; Sketch, London; IT Park Taipei; Kunstwerke, Berlin, and various Serpentine gallery events.[1][2] Hooper is best known for her work with video, including Nyx (2010), Aoide (2011) and Eris (2012), Hooper has also made large scale watercolour paintings including Clay as Bread and Dust as Wine (2016) a 1:1 scale ‘copy’ of an imagined archaeological site in ancient Mesopotamia. She is represented by Hollybush Gardens London [3] and her work is distributed by LUX.[4]

Awards

She was the 2010 winner of the Bâloise Art Prize at Statements, Art Basel.[5]
