Phoebe Davies is a Welsh artist and researcher based at Somerset House Studios. Her practice investigates how people perceive their social framework, often working with and in response to individuals and communities, generating work through collaboration, collective action and DIT* strategies. Her outcomes are often project dependent, including: constructed social spaces, live performances, video, audio and print works.
Recent projects have led her to work with male sports teams, sex educators, farmers, secondary school students, elderly care homes and DJs. As well as arts spaces and institutions, including: Tate Britain and Tate Modern (London), Whitechapel Gallery (London), Arnolfini (Bristol), Tramway (Glasgow), Fierce Festival (Birmingham), South London Gallery (London), Camden Arts Centre (London), Art Licks Weekend (London), Steirischer Herbst (Graz, AUT), Assembly (Portland, USA) and SA-UK SEASONS 2015 (Johannesburg, ZA).
In 2015 she was awarded the British Council Social Practice Fellowship for the International Cultural Exchange US Program.
She currently co-facilitates three research groups: Bedfellows, a sex re-education research project; Synaptic Island, a womxn and non-binary DJ collective based at Corsica Studios; and Art is Action, a social practice research group led by UK based producers.
