Zöe Paul

  • Independent Artist

Zoë Paul works primarily with sculpture, textile and drawing to explore the character of domestic spaces, both in architectural and social terms, and in particular, the point where the threshold between the interior and the exterior seems to disappear. Her work aims to examine our relationship with tradition, and explores shifts in perception around the value of an object according to time and context. Paul often works with simple timeless materials and techniques such as clay, weaving and drawing that have been used throughout centuries and can be sourced and crafted applying very little technology.

Zoë Paul studied at Camberwell College of Art followed by the Royal College of Art. Paul grew up between the Greek island of Kithira and Oxford, and currently lives and works in Athens. Paul’s recent group exhibitions include Unorthodox at the Jewish Museum, New York (2016), The Equilibrists at the New Museum, New York and the DESTE Foundation, Athens (2016), La Perma-Perla Kraal Emporium at Spike Island, Bristol, UK (2018) and (wild wolf, man and fish) Hospitalfield House, Arbroath, Scotland (2018).
