Hermione

Hermione Spriggs is an artist, researcher and exhibition-maker exploring practical methods for perspective exchange. Her collaborative project the Anthropology of Other Animals (“AoOA”) doggedly attempts to elicit extraordinary effects from unpromising materials and explores the hidden links between “craft” and “being crafty.” Originally from Yorkshire, Spriggs holds an MFA in Visual Art from UC San Diego. She is a fellow of Mildred’s Lane, a member of the Social Morphologies Research Unit, and an honorary trustee of the Milcom Memorial Reading Room and Attentional Library. Hermione is currently undertaking practice-based PhD research between the UCL Department of Anthropology and the Slade School of Fine Art, and is curator and contributing editor for the exhibition and publication project "Five Heads: Art, Anthropology and Mongol Futurism" (UCL / Sternberg Press/ Arts Catalyst/ greengrassi).
