Lucy Rose Cunningham is an artist and writer based in Leeds. Her practice looks at the performative potential of language, works made emerging as performances or soundscapes utilising voice and movement, and written words in the form of publications and print. Exploring language as a holistic embrace, she seeks to use voices and field recordings to reflect the mutuality between people and the spaces they dwell in. Spaces and bodies interact as a feedback loop, collecting and exhaling each other’s rhythm. The sounds and words she gathers touch on history and embedded memories within landscapes. In recent years, Cunningham has exhibited performances at Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Gallery Wakefield, South London Gallery, and HuMBase, Stuttgart. She is also the author of pamphlet For Mary, Marie, Maria: after the nectar, pyre and linden tree, published by Broken Sleep Books (2021), with a second pamphlet out for release in July 2022.

She has also recently performed with Leeds Poetry Festival, Leeds Literature Festival and Daytimers’ first South Asian poetry night ‘Mehfil’.
