Zoe Partington

Zoe Partington has lived with diabetes for over 40 years and this has been instrumental in shaping her opinions and rejecting the conventional. From an early age Zoe observed doctors in white coats discussing her management of her diabetes as an abstract reality. She learnt very early on to question and challenge the stereotypical perspective.

Zoe’s commissioned work and her installations are often fragments and ideas explored through her experience of sight loss and her interpretation of life: objects, drawings, paintings, photographs, and installations. They are constructed objects or sites in which the constructed and the virtual are used to question her relationship of the world through visual art, language and knowledge. Her pieces are, about inviting the viewer to move into a space of speculation. She relies on individual’s approaches and understanding for answers, intrigue and playfulness.

Zoe continues to develop inspiring solutions in relation to inclusive arts practise, photography, architecture and design.

Her work has been recognised by, Arts Council England, Shape and the British Council in Brazil. She is an advisor for Shape London on projects internationally across culture and inclusion.
