Davinia-Ann Robinson

Davinia-Ann Robinson (UK) is an artist whose practice examines how ‘presencing’, fugitivity and tactility undo colonial and imperial frameworks through which nature and Bodies of Colour are articulated. This is done by exploring Black, Brown and Indigenous relationships to land and ‘Colonial Nature environments’. Davinia-Ann’s work addresses personal interactions with ‘colonial emotions’ she has encountered as a Black Female Body, building on her intense relationship with the earth as a living material explored through sculpture, sound, writing and performance. Davinia-Ann received an MFA from Slade School of Fine Art (UK) in 2021 and is completing her PhD at Goldsmiths University (UK).
