Joanne Masding is an artist based in Birmingham. Working primarily in video and sculpture, she makes work to investigate the worth, ownership and production of physical stuff and how this translates to a world that is growing increasingly digital, immaterial and reproducible. Recent exhibitions include Plaster Ghost Finger Cast, The New Art Gallery, Walsall, 2017 (solo); image music text, IMT Gallery, London, 2016; stuffs wander off, a shape steps in, Two Queens, Leicester, 2016 (solo); The Place of the Scene, Bloc Projects, Sheffield, 2015; Birmingham Show, Eastside Projects, Birmingham, 2015. I have been artist in residence at 501 Artspace, Chongqing, China, Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Dublin, Ireland and am currently in residence with Research and Cultural Collections at University of Birmingham. In 2015 she developed a residency with Berlin-based artist Katharina Ludwig, in collaboration with Grand Union, Birmingham.
