Pamela Crowe is an artist and writer based in Leeds.
She works with text, image, audio and video, making work about voice and proximity. Her practice explores how we form in response to others, as a work of relief perhaps, according to the spaces and gaps that another’s physical and psychic form allow. So power eventually, she looks at power.
Her recordings – direct readings of her text, poetry and dialogues – are an attempt to clarify the author’s voice and anchor it permanently to the text. She publishes, exhibits and performs live and online, most recently at 2021 Leeds Summer Group Show, Soanyway Magazine and Leeds City Museum. Her text work ‘socks’ was shortlisted for the 2019 Bridport Poetry Prize and ‘Cloudcunt’ in the 2020 National Poetry Competition. Her first collection of poems is forthcoming with The Emma Press.
