Fire Station Residency

Performance and the experience of viewing performance constitute the basis of her practice, which is reflected in the production of objects, sound work, text and video.

Her work has featured in solo exhibitions including Limoncello, London; CCA, Glasgow; and IPS, Birmingham, as well as group exhibitions including CAG Vancouver; Tate Britain, London; V Arts Centre, Shanghai; and Kendall Koppe, Glasgow. Leah’s work has also been screened in institutions including at the Whitechapel Gallery, London; ICA, London; and CCA Wattis, San Francisco.

Fire Station Residency 2015-2020

Acme's residency at the Fire Station is one of the most directly supportive schemes for artists in the United Kingdom, providing combined studio and living space at low rents, as well as a half rent residency for a deaf or disabled artist. This five year fixed-term residency scheme is intended to allow artists more time to concentrate on the development of their work and professional careers, and less time working to survive. 2015-2020 residents were selected by former Acme Residency and Projects Manager Julia Lancaster, and artists and former Fire Station residents Erika Tan and Ben Cove.
