Hermione Spriggs

Hermione Spriggs is an independent artist and researcher exploring practical methods for perspective-exchange. Her collaborative project the Anthropology of Other Animals (“AoOA”) doggedly attempts to elicit extraordinary effects from unpromising materials and explores the hidden links between “craft” and “being crafty.” Originally from northeast England, Spriggs holds an MFA in visual art from UC San Diego and is a fellow of Mildred’s Lane (PA, USA). She is curator and contributing editor for the exhibition and publication project "Five Heads: Art, Anthropology and Mongol Futurism" (based in the UCL Department of Anthropology) and in 2013 she took part in the 3rd Land Art Mongolia Biennial. She is soon to begin a PhD based at the Slade School of Art and UCL Department of Anthropology, and has recently worked with East Side Projects in collaboration with Laura Cooper (Birmingham), the Royal Anthropological Institute (London), Titanik Galleria (Turku, Finland) and The Showroom (London).
