Claire Louise Prosser
Leona’s practice is a cross-disciplinary approach to writing centering on word as event/performance where language is a major, but never the only, component of text – WordsSoundsSpaces. Working across media, using text, sound (including making her own recordings), spatiality and visual image, she actively seeks to highlight physicality, location and context considering them as central in the inter-relationships between writer, word and world. She continually seeks to question definitions, highlighting and crossing unnoticed boundaries laid down through repetition and assumption, and is influenced by ideas from theatre, performance and spoken word, as well as literature and art. She is based in Cardiff, Wales, UK.
