Biography

La Horrox is a UK based visual artist, composer, and performer, her work encompassing projects across sculpting, music, dance and installation. She realises her compositions through visual performance, music and sound conjured directly and indirectly through voice, body or object kinesthesis. Her work binds characters and objets d’art in neoteric myth. Sculpted costume and ‘props’ are sonified, given voice, creating atmosphere, ubiquitous noise and music. Compositions incorporate electronic sound and music, hand-made analogue instruments, voice, sound poetry and samples from her collection of field recording made from travels of the world.

Trained in sculpture, costume design and as sound technician, La Horrox completed a Contemporary Digital Performance MA at Brunel in 2012. Her commissioned works include sculptures and soundtracks for short films, experiential art events, installation, dance and performance. She tours extensively as a member of Wet Sounds, performing her voice and electronic music with Joel Cahen, and since 2013, performing in collaboration with seven voice artists and musicians in sound artist, Lina Lapelyte’s Candy Shop. Her work has been presented internationally at the Barbican Centre, Arnolfini, ISEA, Spill Festival, Glasgow Film Festival, Fierce Festival, and Mackay Festival of the Arts.
