Lily Hibberd is an interdisciplinary artist and writer working with frontiers of time and memory. Her projects are developed in long term place and community-based collaboration, and research with local artists, scientists and historians through combinations of performance, writing, painting, photography, sound, moving image and installation art.

Hibberd is drawn, and is often invited, to create new encounters with marginalised histories and otherwise intangible or contested dimensions of the past in the present.
