Cally Spooner is an artist and writer born in London in 1983, she lives and works in Athens.
Her work consists of media installations, essays, novels and live performances such as radio broadcasts, plays and a musical, which grapple with the organisation and dispossession of that which lives. She often uses rehearsals, or the episodic form, as a means, and an end, in itself.
Recent solo shows include New Museum, New York, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2016); she has participated in numerous group exhibitions, including Aspen Art Museum and REDCAT, Los Angeles (2015). The artist’s essays/writing have appeared in Flash Art and Artforum; her book of scripts is published by SlimVolume (2016) and she is the author of the novel, Collapsing In Parts published by Mousse (2013).
She is a receipt of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Awards for Artists and Writer in Residence at the Whitechapel Gallery.
