Corin Sworn
Professor of Contemporary Art, Northumbria University

Prof. Corin Sworn creates films and installations that push gesture and subjectivity into histories of representation. Frequently revolving around some element that tests what might be performed as a ‘script,’ Sworn is interested in how we stretch and contain information and request a body to meet a role. She is an award winning artist working with performance, video, distributed narrative, digital collage and installation. Previously Associate Professor of Art at the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford.
