Through collaborative and live processes Claire Shallcross’ work employs existing frameworks to create spaces for alternative forms of pedagogy and representation. Shallcross uses pre-existing social norms and values to manipulate perceptions and representations. As both an artist and a curator Shallcross aims to create an environment for the audience to participate in a narrative.
