Samantha Sweeting

Location: London

I am an interdisciplinary artist, working with photography, moving image, performance and installation. Drawing upon memory, myth, psychotherapy, fairy tales and the domestic, my work uses embodied storytelling to examine human and animal behaviour, boundaries and desire.
