Lucy collaborated with Retina on Memo and Freeze and is an artist and filmmaker. She is drawn to beginning with the extraordinary appearance of ordinary things – things that are already in the world, and that invite small interventions between the poetic and scientific, philosophical and humorous, intimate and political.
Her background in performance making and choreography informs her approach to the work she now makes in different media, and she continues to explore innovative forms of collaboration – working with people from a range of communities and fields of expertise.
Between 2005 – 2009 she was an associate member of Goat Island performance, making four moving image works with the company as well as contributing to writing and live performance.
Her moving image work has been shown on television, (Ch4, Filmfour, BBC4 and BBC2) and in over ten different countries, predominantly within Europe but also Australia, Japan, Brazil and the USA, in both galleries and at film festivals.
In 2009 she was awarded a fellowship from South East Dance for her work creating choreographies for the screen. In 2010, alongside, Becky Edmunds, Chirstinn Whyte, Claudia Kappenberg and Gill Clarke she co-curated the What if… festival at Siobhan Davies Space.
She has been an associate artist with Artsadmin since 2007. In 2010 – 2012 she is an associate artist with South East Dance
