Miss Claire Undy



I am an artist and curator, joining Kingston University as a lecturer in 2016. My work is largely performance-based, often taking the form of video, gifs, photography, book-making or installations. The politics of art distribution and ownership influences my production, and I often make work that is designed to be distributed cheaply or given away. I have exhibited in numerous group exhibitions at galleries including Charlie Smith, Five Years, WW Gallery, Transition and Gallery North.

I have been running the curatorial project Skelf since 2016- a virtual project space and platform for art writing on the website Previously I have been awarded the 2013 Curatorial Fellowship at APT Gallery, London- producing three, linked exhibitions and a publication supported by funding from Arts Council England.

The virtual project space I run, Skelf has curated new exhibitions on a monthly basis since May 2016, working collaboratively with artists to re-imagine their work virtually using web coding and time-based media. Accompanying each exhibition is a new paired text from a contemporary writer or artist working with text- curated to provide a new perspective to each exhibition. In 2016, an article about Skelf was published on Curating the Contemporary, an online magazine of contempoary art and culture.

For Exchange Project, my 2013 Curatorial Fellowship at APT Gallery, I worked with 33 artists and four writers to explore differing approaches to the exchange between artist and viewer- producing three group exhibitions, a publication and symposium, supported by the Arts Council.

My art work has been featured in the publication 'About Painting' by Transition Editions, in conjunction with Northumbria University.
