Biography

Performance Artist

Audrey Baldwin is a Zimbabwean born, Ōtautahi based performance artist and curator. She graduated from Ilam School of Fine Arts, Canterbury University in 2009 and has shown in galleries and arts festivals nationally as well as in Japan, India, Zimbabwe, Australia, and The Netherlands. Her recent interactive performance, Art Chemist, has been part of The Performance Arcade (WLG), Nelson Arts Festival, Taranaki Arts Festival and won the ZONTA Female Art Award in 2022.

Collaboration and public engagement are key tools in her practice – many of her works cast the viewer as an active participant. Her work is earnest, absurd and draws on elements of the everyday. From germ-free kissing booths to toffee cages and visceral, confronting body work, Audrey’s approach to performance operates on a spectrum from warm and fuzzy to harsh and gruelling – sometimes simultaneously. Her work comes from a strong intersectional feminist standpoint with a focus on queering spaces and creating opportunities for connection.
