Gemma Gore is a visual artist, researcher, arts educator and writer, based in Southampton, UK. Grounded in positions of disability, motherhood, queer-ecology and radical vulnerability. Collaboration is a key value and method within her practice to explore her research question:

What are the forces, configurations, poetics and discontents of care?

Probing the qualities of intimacy, connection and the nature of inter-dependant ecologies between multi-scalar bodies within the cosmos. Gemma's practise tunes into her body's sensuous ways of knowing, using movement as a way of psychically inhabiting environments not accessible. Underground, underwater, off-world. Gemma's work weaves together hand-made, found, and digital encounters. Gemma's practise holds people, movement, words, code, photography and drawings, creating assemblages of im/materials. Manifesting as artist books and zines, web and video works and installations.

Sharing a practise with Jo Willoughby in from Doggerland, Gemma is also a member of artist/curator collective Stair/Slide/Space, is part of
Practicing Artists Commoning (PAC) artists' peer group (More Than Ponies, New Forest) and affiliated with the global scholar network at Ocean/Uni (TBA21). Awarded Arts Council England Develop Your Creative Practice fund in 2021 for self-initiated R&D project Tender.

Selected exhibitions include Eastside Projects (Birmingham, UK); NewBridge Projects (Newcastle, UK); John Hansard Gallery (Southampton, UK); Irish Museum of Modern Art (Dublin, Ireland); Ormston House (Limerick, Ireland); and Station Independent Projects (New York, USA). Gemma is Associate Artist at John Hansard Gallery, Southampton and ASPEX gallery, Portsmouth.
