Annie Trevorah’s multi-disciplinary practice takes a panoptic and cinematic approach, embracing sculpture, textiles, photography, print, video and sound. Reflecting on socio dynamic interplay between humans and non-humans, her work communicates connectivity, entanglement and mutation and is grounded with concerns around society, justice and political comment. An emphasis on metamorphosis provokes a playful approach to her making as she re-imagines future worlds and new mythologies, while her interest in human–plant interconnectivity leads her to weave and merge linked evolutionary and reproductive processes into her work. Trevorah uses an array of materials and vivid colours, regularly drawing on the ecosystem to provide living sculptures. Strong bodily references expose connections between various manifestations of freedom and containment, control, tension and incongruity and her work often reveals fluidity within structure.
Trevorah had her first London solo show ‘Symbiosis’ (Feb 2023) and is currently preparing for shows at Fold Gallery and a major collaboration with Chelsea Physic Garden as part of its 350th anniversary celebrations. She has exhibited internationally with recent shows at Centro Culturale di Milano, Las Laguna Gallery, USA at Chianciano Biennale and in Mexico. She recently received Gold Award by Gallery Nat for her work in Rush to the Wilderness and exhibited in the Chiaya awards show and the Aesthetica Art Prize show. Trevorah was commissioned by Wandsworth Council to produce a public sculpture in Battersea Park, replacing Barbara Hepworth’s Single Form whilst on loan. She was also awarded the Chianciano Biennale 2022 Prize for Photography and Digital Art and is a recipient of ICAC Art Critics Award.
