Victoria Lucas (b.1982) is an artist and senior lecturer based in Sheffield, UK. She holds a BA in Fine Art Sculpture from Norwich School of Art (2004), MFA in Fine Art from The University of Leeds (2007) and is currently a part-time PhD candidate at Sheffield Hallam University. She teaches at the University of Central Lancashire. Recent artworks incorporate sculpture with video, photography, sound and performance. Lucas uses technology and sculpture to remap, embody and entangle the material strata of landscapes, a process in which female subjectivity is reimagined and reclaimed in place.
