Turning History into Captivating Experiences

Events — Artist Talk RUS 203, ARU Cambridge, East Road, CB1 1PT
19 January 2023, 11:00

Tracy Satchwill is an interdisciplinary artist, working across digital and analogue media, layering a range of materials to create playful and engaging artwork, such as moving image, animation, augmented reality, sculpture, collage, and performance. Her interests are in historical themes, beliefs, and behaviours, focusing on female identities. Through her practice, she explores how women are socially constructed and how history has shaped perspectives and perceptions.

She exhibits internationally including The Courtauld Institute of Art, the Science Museum, Montreal International Film Festival and the Empire State Building. Her solo exhibition, That's Not My Name is currently on show at Normanby Hall, Lincolnshire as part of a 6-month artist residency. Her film I Can See You was awarded Best Original Concept by Jane Austen International Film Festival and received two honourable mentions.

She produces work for Museum and Heritage, reinterpreting and responding to narratives, sites, and collections, including National Trust, Wellcome Collection, Ipswich and Colchester Museums and North Lincolnshire Museum.
