TRACEY KERSHAW

Tracey Kershaw is a visual artist whose maternal experience is central to her practice. Her work is partly autobiographical, whilst at the same time reflecting on common experience. Working with photography, video, installation, sound and text, she explores issues of impermanence, fertility, ageing and the fragility of both time and relationships. Tracey’s long-term project, ‘tell me about your mother…’ has gained national recognition, and in 2015 she was awarded the a-n Re:view Bursary (The Artists Information Company) to further develop this work and her practice in general. She incorporates collaborative and participatory elements into her art; collecting, gathering and sourcing data from life, others and the world around her. She has exhibited widely, often integrating her own presence into her work.
