Hermione Spriggs

Hermione Spriggs (b. 1987, UK) is an artist and researcher exploring practical methods for perspective exchange. Her collaborative project the Anthropology of Other Animals (“AoOA”) doggedly attempts to elicit extraordinary effects from unpromising materials and explores the hidden links between “craft” and “being crafty.” Spriggs is currently undertaking practice-based PhD research between the UCL Department of Anthropology and the Slade School of Fine Art. She is a member of the Social Morphologies Research Unit, and curator for the exhibition and publication project Five Heads: Art, Anthropology and Mongol Futurism.
