Kirsty Harris is an artist and maker, specialising in installation and performative works. She makes work that puts the audience at the centre of the experience and then guides them to weave their own story into the fabric of their environment. Kirsty transforms spaces so those who enter them can also be transformed, be it in a thought, an emotion or their view of the world. She believe in real objects, tangible connections and the importance of generosity and play in both the making and manifestation of live work for an audience.
Kirsty makes immersive worlds and experiences in found environments, landscapes and theatres. She has made work for babies aged 6months and all the ages that come after.
Kirsty has led design-based community projects for The Old Vic, The National Theatre, The National Trust, The V&A and Kensington Palace.
She has collaborated with companies including Wildworks, Kneehigh, Punchdrunk, Shunt, The Young Vic, DreamThinkSpeak, Coney, Likely Story Theatre and Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) on a freelance basis and has been commissioned to make her own work for BAC, Southbank Centre, The Discover Centre, National Theatre Wales, The Museum of London, The National Trust, The Wilson Gallery Cheltenham and other organisations.
