Isabelle Pead

Isabelle Pead (b. London, 1996) is an artist working across sound, sculpture, video and performance, and 2023 postgraduate of Slade School of Fine Art. Often utilising large scale installation, her work is informed by actions of storytelling and collectivism, exploring the relationship between the voice and the sounding body. Drawing on her background in choral and operatic singing, she combines sculptural objects, images and electronic/synthesised sound with her own singing and vocalisations, exploring the material and relational properties of sound and the interaction between performer, space, audience, and object.

Working predominantly with metal, her 2D and 3D sculptural works draw on a range of imagery, from opera, choral, folk singing, churches and acoustic spaces to electronic music, synthesisers and wave form displays, all interlaced with personal images pertaining to her own experience and family histories.
