Lesley Nicholls

Lesley Nicholls practices as a conceptual artist so her work is multi-media and eclectic. She is interested in the ideas behind a work of art, particularly in relation to art theory. She uses film, installation, sound, performance and psychogeography to investigate themes concerning the environment, institutional critique, appropriation, luminal spaces and the interzone while playing with conventions in order to collapse space and time.

Lesley is most interested in the period starting in the late 1960s when modernism was being challenged by theories of post-modernism which led to “art in the age of the post-medium condition” and the plethora of art practices that we see today. She sees this as reflecting the fragmentation and fracturing that has occurred in all aspects of our culture and therefore regards discursive theory as an important part of her artistic language.
