Lucinda Dayhew makes rhythmic objects, moulding them into vessels to explore social and environmental relations. Her rhythms shift shape, materialising in sculptural, sonic, music, spoken, and text form. Executing installation, film and video, photographic, performance and sound works, Dayhew investigates (sub)tropicalism, mother and other sexuality, language acquisition, (non) human exchanges, behavioural patterns, the fragmentation and precarity of labour, monocropping and: spurns the compulsory yet constrictive form of the short artist bio. She is a keen collaborator. Her works also wrestle with observational humour, lack, failure, holes, and voids.

Lucinda Dayhew was born in Orange, Australia and lives in Berlin, Germany.
