Naomi Harwin is an artist based in Manchester who works predominately in sculpture and installation. Her work centres around sensory experience and perceptual encounters. Most recently she has been exploring how bodily perception can cultivate resilience in the face of disorientation. With societal and environmental uncertainty, feelings of instability can arise and we seek out connection. Naomi explores how we connect with; our bodies, each other and our environment through the senses available to us. Creating interactive and mixed media artworks that reference sensory and inclusive design, architectural scenography and play, she aims to create moments of connectivity and shared experience.
Naomi’s recent work has included projects with In Transit, Bankley Studios and Gallery, Hospital Rooms, Wysing Arts Centre, 1961 Singapore, Firstsite and Airspace Gallery. She is based at Paradise Works in Salford where she has been since 2021.
