Victoria Bone an interdisciplinary artist with live art/performance at the centre of her practice. Bone look's at the paradox in themes such as submission & control, strength & vulnerability and consider the social and economical restraints placed on the female body. Bone's work involves physically exploring and responding to materials that embody these themes, from this she creates items to move in, sometimes on the edge of wearability. The items are influenced by ceremonial costume and ritual, and the movement by simple domestic and historical actions.
