Graduate of the Month: Amy Rosa

Live artist Amy Rosa works with a wide variety of materials from the likes of woods, beaches, parks and even electric fencing.

The BA Contemporary Performance Practice (2013) graduate was recently named as the recipient of the 2018 Adrian Howells Award for intimate performance. She will use the award to undergo a year-long process merging quantum theory, mindfulness and meditation called Untitled (Ice). Every day Amy will contribute to an ice diary, meditating on 365 cylinders of ice as they freeze, culminating in a durational piece of intimate performance.

Amy has had to reassess her approach to her life and work after she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, an incurable condition causing symptoms including chronic pain and fatigue. Her experiences led to Femme Fatigue, a project collecting real life stories from women centred on experiences of health care.
