About Bryony Kimmings

Inspired by the taboos, stigmas, anomalies and social injustices around her, Bryony Kimmings' work centres around outlandish 'social experiments' conducted with genuine genius, intrigue and wholehearted fearless gusto. Previous works have seen the artist retracing an STI to its source, spending 7 days in a controlled environment in a constant state of intoxication and becoming a pop star invented by a 9 year old. Bryony's award-winning work has toured across the world. Most recently to Soho Theatre, Antifest (Finland), Culturgest (Portugal), Fusebox Festival (Texas), The Southbank Centre, Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Australia) and Lisinski Operahouse (Croatia). Kimmings also mentors artists, teaches workshops, writes a popular arts blog, speaks on panels and is sometimes on the telly.
