Libby Cufley

I am an artist moving image practitioner and researcher, based in Coventry and London. The domestic space, work, mental health and the body are key themes within my practice. Research areas of interest include artists’ moving image distribution, brutalist architecture, feminist film theory, identity politics and artists’ moving image from the 70s and 80s. I am continuing a project on the feminist film distributor Circles (now Cinenova) using my dissertation as a basis for more practice based outcomes. My practice is currently executed across various related media used by Circles/Cinenova artist filmmakers including but not exclusively Super-8, tape-slide and performance. I am also exploring the thematic concerns of some Circles/Cinenova filmmakers such as women’s health, mental health, work and formalism. Since 2018 I have been experimenting with newer media such as gifs and 360 degree video. This experimentation has been inspired by Black Hole Club exhibitions and the work of the 2018 cohort.
