Victoria Walters is an academic and artist. Her sculptural installation practice relates to narratives of home, protection and the state of exception. Photography is also important to her and photographic documentation of the structures she builds sometimes becomes the work itself. Her visual art practice dialogues with her writing, ongoing research and critical reflection. She is currently an Associate Artist of the Bricks Artist Programme, Reaching Resilience.
Victoria is a member of the artist network Space, Place, Practice. Her recent work with the network includes a contribution to its forthcoming publication on home (in press) and a site responsive work planned for the Centre of Gravity project at the Old Soap Factory/Gardiner Haskins. Her academic work has largely focused on the work and legacies of German 20th Century artist and “radical ecologist” Joseph Beuys and the relationship between art and anthropology. She is currently working as an Associate Lecturer at UWE Bristol.
