Molly Palmer works within and between the media of music, installation, choreography and filmmaking. Using handmade props, sets and costumes to produce layered video worlds, she green-screens her protagonists into parallel places, where music, gesture and dialogue form cyclical narratives that explore the strangeness concealed within ordinary things.
Palmer is currently in residence at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam. She graduated from Royal Academy Schools, where she won the Gold Medal.
