Clare Gemima

Clare Gemima spends studio time collaging and constructing sculptures that grapple with ideas of loss, grief, after-life, and psychological collapse. Recurring materials in her studio include metal mesh, tv screens, adhesive, acrylic & laser cut perspex, and a wide range of soft and hard fabrics, digital design mediums, text documents, and paint. Gemima graduated with a BFA in sculpture and as the recipient of the 2017 Wikiriwhi Scholarship from Whitecliffe College of Arts in Design in Tamaki Makaurau, Aotearoa. After crowd-funding, and working in New Zealand's cultural/libraries sector as a Unique Experiences Designer for almost a year, she moved to New York City at the end of 2018. She is currently on an O1 Artist Visa.​ Clare Gemima also contributes art criticism regularly to The Brooklyn Rail, Contemporary HUM, and several other arts based publications with a particular interest in building scholarship for immigrant artists that are currently working towards their artist visas, artists currently working in residency programs, emergent painters and sculptors operating outside of androcentric concepts, and female-identifying, multimedia practitioners based both in New York and internationally. She has been a member of the USA sector of the Association Internationale des Critiques d'Art (AICA-USA), since 2023. She is currently seeking a way to get to the upcoming 60th Venice Biennale, Foreigners Everywhere, in 2024.
