Leanne O’Connor

Leanne is an artist-maker who explores research-led making across processes, machines & materials associated with manufacturing & trade, now focusing on the material futures of steel & glass & their connections to archives & collections across the West Midlands. Leanne is also fascinated with connotations of materiality, and how objects have the power to become self-portraits.

Leanne was Whitworth Wallis Artist in Residence 2019 at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, exploring archive-led research into stained glass production, culminating in a series of public events & an exhibition on show until Jan 2021. She was a bursary artist on the Living Memory Project, showing her new sculpture at New art Gallery Walsall in Summer 2021.
