Tracey Payne works in sculpture, installation and video.
‘Making objects, filling spaces where people will be alarmed and will laugh. Slapstick, silliness, accidents, surprises. Stand-up, fall-down. How/who to trust? Around the edges and in the gaps we live our lives. It all seems so permanent, monolithic and unshiftable until things start to move. Form without substance. Breath, no breath.’
Since June 2011 a significant part of her research has been in collaboration with Ellie Collins.
