Claire Hope: Human but not practiced


An actor performs different physical states, questioning what it means to exist, act, assume or relinquish control.

Claire Hope (UK, 1977) is based in Leeds. She recently screened moving image at Kunstraum, London and Islington Mill, Manchester as part of the touring programme ‘You are Good’. Hope has also shown moving image with Pavilion in Leeds and Cinenova at Showroom Gallery, London and had solo exhibitions at Project Space, University of Leeds (2017) and Gallery II, Bradford (2014). She curated a screening programme ‘Images and Affects’ in 2017 and performed live at the Brunel Museum Tunnel Shaft, London (2015). She is an Associate Lecturer in Fine Art at Manchester School of Art and 0.4 Lecturer (Sabbatical Cover) in Fine Art at Leeds Beckett University.
