Bryony Henderson is a director, performance artist and curator for innovative art. Bryony started her career in 2000 by making short performances and showing them on the street with the public. Recently galleries, people’s homes, streets, cinemas and theatres around the U.K and Europe have staged her work. Bryony makes events that challenge the spectator to re-view their relationship with identified particular phenomena in their life. Her work sets up environments for the spectator’s imagination to flourish into other possibilities.

In 2005 Bryony set up the London School of Art and Business with Charles Davies. The school provided a playful meeting place for established and emerging artists and businesses to meet, challenge each other and provoke learning systems. This initiative developed into the School of Everything, which is now produced by The Young Foundation. Bryony also co-founded the group Leonard in 2005. Bryony is also part of ‘something like spit’ an international collective dedicated to developing quality art forms to explore a common theoretical interest.

You must keep on making this interdisciplinary work, the art world needs it.”  Anke Bangma, Director, Piet Zwart.
