Lisa-Marie Harris (b. 1983) is a multi-disciplinary artist from Trinidad & Tobago, living and working in London. Her work addresses the objectification and dehumanisation of women by interrogating how their bodies are re-framed as things. Harris’ work is informed by a personal history of motherhood and reproduction; by Trinidadian culture, spirituality and ecology; and by migration. Across her practice, the breaking apart and re-constituting of body parts, sensations and experiences, positions the body as a contested space one seeks to own.
Winner of the Ingram Prize 2022, Harris will have her first institutional solo exhibition The Pusher and The Pull at Lightbox Gallery Museum, Woking, UK in July 2023. Her first UK solo exhibition takes place at Cooke Latham Gallery in June 2023. Previous group exhibitions include Raw Nerves, Hannah Barry Gallery, London, Detritus, Tension Gallery, London, Curved Space, PEER Gallery, London, Ingram Prize, Unit1 Gallery | Workshop, London. She was the recipient of the Helen Scott Lidgett Award in 2022, and the Jane Carole Clarke Memorial Award, 2021.
