ZOË WALKER & NEIL BROMWICH
Zoë Walker and Neil Bromwich protest and dream, via public art, sculpture and performance working
between the gallery space and the public realm.

There work explores the space between the real landscape and an imagined location. Within this luminal
space the duo create objects and situations that invite there audience to join them in enacting
transformative experiences they invite us to consider an ‘other’ way of being. There practice brings together
a humorous and surreal aesthetic while often engaging with social political issues.

Limbo-Land, an inflatable, handcrafted, fabric moon and video work, was made and filmed in
Northumberland on the Scottish English border. The work echoes the melancholic atmosphere of this
expansive east coast landscape and congers up a state of ‘in between-ness’ both physical and
physiological. The film, presents Walker as an amateur astronaut caught between the land and the sky in a
trag¬ic comic attempt to harness the moon’s energies and reach the ultimate frontier. Limbo-Land invites
us to re-consider our relationship to the world and its physical limits. Last year Limbo-Land was exhibited
as a solo show at Baltic featured and features on IMAGINE, BBC1 arts program with Alan Yentob

Zoë Walker and Neil Bromwich have exhibited widely in the UK and abroad showing at BALTIC Centre for
Contemporary Art, Gateshead; The Fruitmarket, Edinburgh; the Cornerhouse, Manchester; ACCA

commissions, including My Island Home for the Victoria and Albert Museum; Sci-Fi Hot Tub, a Kielder Art
and Architecture Commission, funded by Wellcome Trust, and have been featured recently on BBC1’s
Imagine with Alan Yentob

Recent Live Projects include Love Cannon Parade at Whitechapel Gallery, Camden Arts Centre, and the
