Molly Palmer’s work encompasses music, installation, sculpture, choreography and filmmaking.
Using handmade props, sets and costumes to produce layered video worlds, she green-screens her protagonists into parallel places, where music, gesture and dialogue form cyclical narratives that explore the strangeness concealed within ordinary things.
Here, sculptural objects, artificial landscapes and otherworldly humans create scenarios where communication is primarily done without words. Through layering, rhythm and the multiplicity of bodies, viewpoints and perspectives we witness fractured identities and inhabit shifting dream states.
Palmer graduated from Royal Academy Schools in 2016, receiving the Gold Medal. She was awarded Jerwood Visual Arts Artist’s Bursary in 2017.
