ARTISTS / Eloise Govier
Eloise Govier creates art installations and performances using vibrant vivid colour. These installation works include the 'Ticker-Tape' series - an ongoing public artwork that has now reached a thousand brightly coloured bricks that are moved around socially significant spaces. To date this piece has been performed in Berlin, Scotland, Bristol, Wales and in Hay on Wye on the border between England and Wales. In 2016 she curated the ‘Cartesian Cut?’ exhibition for Fringe Arts Bath which featured artworks by important contemporary artists such as Ellie Harrison (Glasgow Effect), and created the ‘Colourscape Lab’ for artists and anthropologists at the Arnolfini, Bristol.
Since 2008, Govier has exhibited both nationally and internationally, and her work has been displayed in galleries in Japan, Amsterdam, Spain, Berlin, and London. She has also received acclaim outside of the traditional boundaries of art; her art has been showcased at the London Morgan showroom, a UNESCO Protected Modernist Housing Estate in Berlin, the Welsh Assembly, and at the AT-Bristol Science Center where her work was also projected from the BBC Big screen. She has been featured or interviewed by numerous magazines and newspapers, including an interview with the BBC.
Her work has been filmed by the BBC and S4C and she has been described as being “one of the most dynamic artists to emerge from Britain” (Sarah Jane Absalom) as “heir apparent to Sir Kyffin’s legacy” (Robin Turner, Western Mail) and “a name to remember” (Paul Martin, BBC). In 2018 Govier was awarded a Doctorate from the University of Wales and is a Fellow of the Higher Education
