Jude Crilly’s multidisciplinary practice consists of sculpture, performance, writing, sound, coding and drawing. Her work builds narratives around contemporary notions of individuality, and how the individual functions or malfunctions within complex apparatuses of technology, labour, and gender.


Recent exhibitions and performances include: Whitstable Biennale (2018), Stroom Den Haag (2017), Filet Gallery, London (2017), Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius (2016), The Serpentine Gallery, London (2015).
