Lives and works in United Kingdom
Victoria Burgher lives and works in London. She studied Fine Art at University of the Arts, London and is currently undertaking a Masters in Art and Politics at Goldsmiths, University of London. Burgher has been exhibiting since 2006 and won the Oppenheim-John Downes Memorial Trust Award in 2010 and the RBS Sculpture Bursary in 2008. She also works as a journalist.
Victoria Burgher’s practice includes sculpture, video and installation. Recent work focuses obliquely on contemporary political issues, with meaning referenced through the choice and employment of materials. Often taking a site, space or situation as a starting point, Burgher will use substance and process to translate, reinterpret and embody the voices that emanate from it. Drawn to “poor” materials and ephemeral outcomes, she is interested in amassing elements to create a larger whole and in creating environments that are participated in rather than merely spectated.
