Her commitment to working collectively around the current ecological crisis forged The Gluts (Gina Birch, Hayley Newman and Kaffe Matthews) who took their musical, Café Carbon, to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009. Her novella, Common, was written as self-appointed artist-in-residence in the City of London over the summer of 2011. Common takes its readers through crashes in global markets, turbulence in the Euro-zone, riots on hot summer nights and the most extraordinary imaginings.
She recently completed the work Histoire Economique, a series of rubbings of the fronts of banks in the City of London, made on used envelopes; the very things banks send us information about our finances in. A member of the art/activist collective Liberate Tate, she lives and works in London and is represented by Matt’s Gallery.
She is a tutor on the doctorial programme at the Slade School of Fine Art and Reader at Chelsea College of Art and Design.
