The Missing Passenger
National Railway Museum, York
Opening March 2017
Geraldine Pilgrim works across theatre and the visual arts and is known for her evocative installations and site-specific performances which create a contemporary dialogue with occupied and deserted historic houses and buildings. Working with the history – imagined and real – of a space, she specialises in creating installations and performances in unusual buildings and landscapes. She responds to the architecture of the site for inspiration and narrative to reveal the memories and atmospheres that have built up over the years.
Geraldine trained as a fine artist and theatre designer. She co-founded and became artistic director of Hesitate and Demonstrate, the influential visual theatre company, and has since been making installations, theatre performances and large scale site-specific events.
Geraldine is an Artsadmin artist, an associate lecturer at Wimbledon College of Art and visiting lecturer at Central St. Martins, Goldsmiths College and LAMDA. Geraldine runs courses and workshops for emerging and established arts practitioners and has led both summer and winter schools throughout Europe.
