        Delaine Le Bas

        artist, Worthing

      1. Delaine Le Bas (born 1965) is an artist whose elaborate installations involve embroidery, painting, drawing, sculpture, found objects, and video. Her expansive works deal with issues of exclusion, identity, stereotypes, untold histories, misrepresentation, gender, and being the Other. Through her artistic practice, the British Romani artist works with the body as a stolen artifact and contested space and seeks to come to terms with stereotypical perceptions of Roma people, their perennial homelessness, and the intolerance to which they are subjected, particularly in the contexts of Great Britain and Europe. Recent exhibitions include: Safe European Home?, Wiener Festwochen, Vienna, 2011; Reconsidering Roma—Aspects of Roma and Sinti Life in Contemporary Art, Kunstquartier Bethanien, Berlin, 2011; Witch Hunt, Campbell Works, London, 2011; and Meet Your Neighbours, Akademie Graz, Graz, 2008. Le Bas lives and works in various locations across the United Kingdom and Europe. [Last updated 2016]
