Ghost and John are a multidisciplinary art duo best known for their innovative integration of performance and contemporary technologies; and collaborative approach to making socio-politically pertinent artworks. Drawing from their experiences working in biology and computer science, they have developed a dynamic artistic practice that examines the intricacies of the body and nature, technological advances and folklore accompanying history. Their focus is on developing strategies for decolonising mainstream narratives through delivering cultural programmes telling stories of migrants, refugees, queer people and other marginalised groups.
"Radio Neighbourhood" has been awarded Ideas and Pioneers Grant by Paul Hamlyn Foundation. "Bitter Moves Sweet Truths" has been shortlisted for Untapped Award 2023. They were ImPulsTanz danceWEBBER and ATLAS Young Choreographer in 2019. 5+ projects supported by Art Council England. They were previous researchers at Moving Margins and are currently Civic Futures fellow at Greater London Authority.
Their works have been presented internationally at Bloomsbury Festival and CCA Goldsmiths in London, ImPulsTanz in Vienna and Goethe-Institut in Hong Kong. Ghost and John are co-founders of Hidden Keileon CIC - an art collective creating the yet-to-exist and hard-to-imagine.
