Hannah Leighton-Boyce (b. 1980, Stroud) lives and works in Manchester, England. Her sculptural works range from site-specific and ephemeral actions, to drawing, sound and installation. Her working method combines material and process led exploration with present day and archival research, to explore forms of place, object and body relations through themes of surface and erasure, embodiment and connectivity.
Recent exhibitions include Ruth Barker & Hannah Leighton-Boyce at Castlefield Gallery; a collaborative live sculpture made with residents of Helmshore, Lancashire (2014); Instruments of Industry at Touchstones Rochdale (2016) funded by a New Opportunities Award [New Expressions3], the audio installation was released in 2017 on Folklore Tapes’ Industrial Folklore Series.
