Biography

Gemma Nash is a sound artist whose work focuses on re-imagining the ‘othered’ body and the complex relationship between medicine, disability and ethics.   She is particularly interested in using rehashed found sounds and other recycled materials to create impressionistic and disjointed pieces.

Gemma is currently involved in a number of cross-arts residencies and research programmes - such as Around the Toilet, D2Art and Metal LAB.  Her work often addresses issues around identity and the objectification of the ‘othered body’.  This can been realised in her most recent commissions: Travelling Toilet Tales and The Veins of a Slack Rope Dancer.

She is also working with the Drake Music Innovation Lab North on a sound investigation exploring how the ‘non-normative voice’ both interrupts our understanding of personhood, and also presents a possibility of transcending vocal perfection.  The sound investigation is based upon research she presented at last year’s Theorising Normalcy and The Mundane conference hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University.
