Miranda Pennell is an artist and filmmaker based in London. Her recent and current work uses photographic archives as the starting point for a reflection on colonial legacies.
She originally trained in contemporary dance, and her award-winning videos exploring choreography in everyday life have been widely screened and broadcast internationally. Pennell later received an MA in visual anthropology from Goldsmiths College, University of London, in 2010, and went on to undertake practice-led PhD research on approaches to activating images from imperial archives, completed in 2016.
Pennell teaches moving image and performance practices; she sometimes writes and curates; and as an activist she organises around the politics of anti-racism, internationalism and human rights.
