Lindsay Seers

b. 1966, United Kingdom

Lindsay Seers (born 1966) is a British artist living and working in London. Her installation Extramission 6 (Black Maria) was included in Nicolas Bourriaud's Tate Triennial, 'Altermodern' in 2009. She was recently awarded the Derek Jarman Award with a commission of four short films for Channel 4; the Paul Hamlyn Award in 2010 and the Sharjah Art Foundation Award in 2012. She is represented by Matt's Gallery, London.

Seers is associated with a genre defined by Mike Brennan as Neo-Narration. Nicolas Bourriaud in his book Altermodern (Tate Triennial 2009) describes her work as ‘ceaselessly re-editing the documentary of her life as a black woman in modern day Britain’, although in fact her works use biography more widely as a locus for a complex intertwining of events.
