Artist and writer

Selina can't make it to Curio in person, so she's sending us a remote provocation instead.

Selina is an artist and writer whose work has been shown and praised internationally. Her practice is intimate, political and participatory with a strong emphasis on public engagement, which leads to provocative and highly visual work that seeks to connect with those historically excluded by the arts.

Selina’s work is currently focused on the politics of marginalisation, and how this comes to define our bodies, relationships and environments. She has made work for pubs, hairdressers, toilets, and sometimes even galleries and theatres, including BBC Radio, the National Theatre Studio and The National Theatre of Scotland as well as theatres across the UK, Europe, Brazil, North America and Australia.

Selina has been described as ‘a force of nature’ (The Stage) and ‘an inspiration’ (The Independent). She was feature in The Stage 100 Most Influential Leaders 2018, and awarded the Forced Entertainment Award in 2019.
