My name is Hamish MacPherson.
I am a London-based artist interested in the intersections between choreography and philosophy.
Much of my work involves setting up relational structures that can be used for learning, performance-making and other encounters. I am particularly interested in the interplay between theoretical knowledge and practical, embodied knowledge. I might work with abstract ideas in quite literal, concrete ways or focus on how we discuss something alongside what we are discussing.
Current interests include the dark and disengaged aspects of care, and the embodiment of state politics. I also think about ugly feelings like resentment and complaining, and what it means to prepare for the future.
My 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.
I often collaborate with other people on projects and I also perform with/ for others.
You can find me on Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr but the best way to find out what I’m doing is to subscribe to my email newsletter.
