Deborah Suzanne Lander

A multidisciplinary artist-curator. Graduated Master of Fine Art at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge with distinction 2021. She describes herself as a scavenger, storyteller and archivist who is fascinated by the number three, which she incorporates into her work. She uses narratives to traverse the realms of rituals, myths, and religions, in an increasingly secular society, as well as supporting the idea of death-positivity.

Her creative practice continues with film and photography work in a Fine Art context, exploring the mind, memory, and human connections. Inspired by Vanitas Imagery and the concept of the Memento Mori along with Renaissance and Baroque art and an interest in how they can be curated in the contemporary art of today. She also has a love of the way silent films tell a story visually.

Her research is focused on practice-based methodologies questioning what it means to be ‘human’. She experiments with appropriated objects, photography, sculpture, ink drawings, assemblage, and a love of rogue taxidermy.

Currently researching the Art of Commoning, she works with WearetheMinories in Colchester as their in-house curator delivering exciting, contemporary exhibitions and projects. She also works with the Victor Batte-lay Foundation as their videographer and archiver.
