Georgie Earnshaw is a multimedia artist based in East London, working across photography, moving image and performance. With an interest in camp sensibility, her work is often found in the intersection between politics and dark humour. Interested in sexual politics, gender performance and absurdity, she aims to use her work to provoke, destroy and amuse.
Georgie initially trained in Contemporary Dance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, where she was first introduced to Performance Art. She is now completing a Masters at Central Saint Martins where she continues to explore what performance can be. Currently she is investigating the medium of Self-Portraiture, exploring the form’s performative potential. This makes up the basis of this exhibition, using the self and autobiographical material to form the narrative of her work.
