Fay Stevens is an academic, archaeologist, curator, artist and writer. Her work is a process of excavation; an unravelling of layers of time, memory and substance. It is a philosophical enquiry and experience, concerned with trace, elements, the senses, inscription and corporeal interplay. She draws upon and specialises in the philosophical school of phenomenology as a critical and performative lens through which she works. She has held artistic residences in England, Scotland, Hungary and Spain, curated visual and performance art events at Arnolfini (Bristol), Salisbury (UK) and Bath (UK) and has exhibited her work in the UK, Berlin and Sweden.
Fay has lectured in a number of UK Universities and currently holds positions as Adjunct Professor, University of Notre Dame (U.S.A) in London; Sessional Lecturer, University of Oxford (OUDCE and OUSSA) and Visiting Lecturer, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London. She is an artist and committee member of Bath Society of Artists, curator and committee member for Fringe Arts Bath, studio holder at Bath Artists’ Studios and an associate artist at 44AD Artspace, Bath.
