Hamish MacPherson is a London-based artist interested in the intersections between choreography and philosophy and politics.
Much of his work involves setting up relational structures that can be used for learning, performance-making and other encounters. He is particularly interested in the interplay between theoretical knowledge and practical, embodied knowledge. Hamish works with abstract ideas in quite literal, concrete ways or focusses on *how* people discuss something alongside *what* they are discussing.
His current interests include the dark and disengaged aspects of care, and the embodiment of state politics. He also thinks about ugly feelings like resentment and complaining, and what it means to prepare for the future.
Hamish’s work takes the form of performances, films, audio pieces, texts, games, workshops, publications, festivals and other things. They take place in art and educational institutions, online and occasionally in public spaces. He often collaborates with other people on projects and also performs with/ for others.
