Elizabeth Murton is a visual artist working in installation, sculpture and mark making. She works with materials to explore ideas across disciplines.
Between Materials and Mechanisms was an Arts Council England funded programme which included a residency at University of Hertfordshire. Over a nine month period, Murton engaged in dialogue with specialists and participants, exploring cross disciplinary ideas, processes and materials to culminate in an ambitious installation. The installation and accompanying symposium (featured in the film) explores textile processes and architectural features within the gallery space, in relation to the mechanisms and materials within the human body.
This project was made possible with support from Arts Council England, UH Galleries and Contemporary Art Practice Research Group, School of Creative Arts.
