Marianna Simnett, a London-based artist working with moving image, installation, watercolour and performance. Recently exploring female subjectivity and bodily integrity as they relate to the power dynamics of the medical profession. “The limits and possibilities of being inside a body are central to the use of sound in Simnett’s work. Bodily noises and medical machinery recur, blending with musical influences connected to her classical training and spell at musical theatre school as a teenager. Her work offers an inversion of the way sound in art is often treated as an external force, attacking the passive body.” (Tessa Norton in The Wire ) Simnett exhibits widely, won the Jerwood / FVU Award in 2015 and was shortlisted for the Jarman Award in 2017. She designed the current Night Tube map cover for Art on the Underground.
