Lucy Hutchinson is an artist and lecturer who lives and works in London. She works part-time as an administrator at Nelly Ben Hayoun Studios.
Lucy makes work using found material, CGI, 3D printing and moving image. She often works with other areas of expertise such as academics, scientists, engineers, writers and designers; creating metaphors, stories and interventions to understand complex realities.
She is currently working on a project with King’s College London’s Centre for Regenerative medicine, where she is working with people who have been treated with lab grown or printed cells and the health-care professionals who performed their treatments. Using fiction as method she will interpret these realities, exploring regeneration and treatment in the digital era. By responding to a wide range of experiences she intends to challenge one’s understanding of ‘alien’ or ‘cyborg’ bodies, she will consider how these treatments shape identity and feed into a larger structure of feminist, industrial and disability politics. The project will culminate in a film, publication and symposium in 2021.
She graduated with MA Fine Art Print (Distinction) from the Royal College of Art in 2019 and was awarded the Stanley Picker Tutorship 2019/20 at Kingston University, where she lectures on BA Fine Art. Selected residencies and exhibitions include; The Royal Academy, South London Gallery, CGP London, London College of Fashion, Eastside Projects, The National Trust and The Library of Birmingham.
Her work is held in internationally renowned collections including; The Arts Council Collection, The V&A Museum and The Royal College of Art.
