Lucy Meyle (b. 1989, Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland. Lives and works in Makaurau, Auckland) uses sculpture, publicatio, installation, and video as sites for re-imaging and re-imagining our relations to what is human and more-than-human in our time of climate emergency. Humour and playfulness form key aspects of her works, acting to re-orientate perspectives or subjective interpretations through propositions that seem absurd, yet which materially demonstrate their own potential. Her recent exhibitions include Soft Spot, Enjoy Gallery (2020), March Mostra, British School at Rome (2019), Looking Forwards and Backwards (with Ziggy Lever), Blue Oyster Art Project Space (2017). In 2018 she completed a practice-led PhD titled “Does a Flower Rehearse for Spring” at Auckland University of Technology.
