Isabelle Zhizhi Southwood makes objects, drawings, paintings and videos about experiences that are universal yet feel painfully personal; birth, death, love. The process of making is important, often involving collaboration. Material choices are influenced by a mixed Chinese and British heritage. After studying at The Slade, UCL, receiving the Grocers’ Queen’s Golden Jubilee Scholarship and Clare Winsten Memorial Award, Isabelle co-founded Turf Projects. Previous exhibitions include Young London (V22, London), Polycephaly (Pulchri Studio, The Netherlands), Tru Luv (Turf Projects, Croydon), Bloomberg New Contemporaries (Spike Island, Bristol & ICA, London).
