Claire Hooper's recent work has been concerned with Greek mythology, in particular the way in which Hesiod's Theogony gives an anthropomorphic familial relation to matter and experience. Her practice touches on perception and experience in narrative, and how one immerses oneself in reading or watching. She has been particularly interested in descriptions of interior spaces and how this relates to the interiority of fantasy.
Hooper has shown widely in Europe and abroad including recent and forthcoming shows at Lothringer 13, Munich; MUMOK, Vienna; Sketch, London; IT Park Taipei; Kunstwerke, Berlin, and various Serpentine gallery events. She is represented by Hollybush Gardens London and her work is distributed by Lux.
She was the 2010 winner of the Bâloise Art Prize at Statements, Art Basel and the recipient of the Film London Sea Change Residency, 2011.
