Zoë Buckman

Zoë Buckman is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sculpture, installation, and photography, exploring themes of feminism, mortality, and equality. She often utilizes stereotypically gendered objects to create artworks based on lived experiences.

Buckman’s feminist approaches grapple with issues of identity, trauma, and violence, calling for dialogue between women. Her application of vintage fabrics, such as from wedding dresses or table linens, have intimate associations, but also serve as a reminder of traditional domestic expectations. Buckman addresses patriarchal dynamics, for example through vintage fabric’s connotation with 20th-century gender roles or boxing gloves’ allusion to hyper-masculinity and strength.

She was born in 1985 in Hackney, East London and lives and works in New York, NY. Her work has been featured in publications including Vogue, Forbes, Architectural Digest, and The Guardian. She is represented in collections including the National Portrait Gallery, London, the Whitney Museum of American Artthe Baltimore Museum of Art, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami.
