Morven Mulgrew is an interdisciplinary artist working across performance, sculpture, costume and design. She makes live work, costume and artefact concerned with the body. Interested in the homemade, the handmade, DIY and shonkiness as well as precision, shape and form, she likes abstract absurdities and grandiose gestures. She is a professional amateur and is making it up as she goes along. She has recently taken up pottery.
Graduating from Glasgow School of Art with a degree in Sculpture (2004), she then graduated from Cordwainer’s College as a Shoemaker (2007) and Ecole de Theatre de Jacques Lecoq (LEM programme 2012). She was awarded the A-N collaborator’s bursary in 2013 with Jess Akerman and is currently a performer and maker with Rebecca Davies’ The Oasis Social Club project. She has performed at Roxy Assembly Edinburgh, Colchester Arts Centre, Mons Belgium as part of the European Capital of Culture as well as youth clubs, train stations and anywhere else that will have her.
