Joanna is an artist and senior lecturer at Leeds Beckett University, Leeds School of Arts. Her practice research explores the body space developing choreographic and embodied practices producing drawings, installation and performance. Central to her practice is line-making; lines mediated by the body as ways to draw out encounters with specific sites. Extracting movements such as her recent work in Edgelands draws body spaces that are entangled between body, site-based objects and the movement systems of others in a choreographic ‘drawing out’ correspondence to produce what she terms blublilds - building the body space.
