Ghost and John are a multidisciplinary art and cultural entrepreneur duo best known for their innovative integration of performance and contemporary technologies, and their collaborative approach to delivering socio-politically pertinent projects. 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.

 

As queer migrant activist artists, Ghost and John have successfully organised and presented numerous esteemed cultural and charity sector projects, focusing on the fragmented memories of traumatic experiences related to the displacement of home, relationships, social movement, and technological interactions. Their work “Radio Neighbourhood”  has been awarded the Ideas and Pioneers Grant by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, and “Bitter Moves Sweet Truths” was shortlisted for the Untapped Award 2023. With over five projects supported by Arts Council England, they are co-founders, lead strategists and creatives of Hidden Keileon CIC, an artist-led social enterprise creating the yet-to-exist and hard-to-imagine.

 

Ghost and John’s works have been presented internationally at Bloomsbury Festival and CCA Goldsmiths in London, ImPulsTanz in Vienna, Goethe-Institut in Hong Kong, and more. They were researchers at Moving Margins 2021-22. Ghost is a 2021 MGC Futures bursary recipient. John was Greater London Authority’s 2022 Civic Futures fellow and on Ecological Health in Neighbourhoods 2023 with Centric Lab and Civic Square. They were 2019 ImPulsTanz danceWEBBER and ATLAS Young Choreographer, as well as holders of MA (Distinction) Contemporary Dance, The Place.
