Zoe Childerley

Artist/Senior Lecturer

Zoe is a Senior Lecturer at Kingston University and has been working as an artist using photography and mixed media for over 10 years. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and undertaken numerous commissions and residencies, with a strong record in community projects.


Her work is developed by interaction with different communities; reflecting a vision of the world concerned with identity, belonging and our relationship to the land; in how the landscape shapes society, how “place” is deconstructed, augmented, discussed and experienced.


Zoe’s recent work has explored the rural experience and relationship to place, how this forms a sense of identity and belonging. Her most recent book ‘The Debatable Lands’ in inspired by walking the Anglo-Scottish border. She is interested in landscape, and particularly in combining a desire to experience the ‘sublime’ with the inexplicable seduction of the abyss.
