Lesley Guy

Lesley Guy is an artist and writer based in Newcastle, UK.

Lesley Guy is an artist and writer based in Newcastle, UK. She graduated with an MA in Contemporary Fine Art from Sheffield Hallam University in 2010 and has exhibited widely across Europe, Asia and the UK. Group shows include Portmanteau, curated by g39 for Halle 14 in Leipzig, Jeune Creation at Centquatre, Paris, Appropriate Response, Vulpes Vulpes, London, POSSESSION (1) at BACC, Bangkok and Deadpan Exchange VIII at Casa Maauad in Mexico City. She works as part of the collective known as TOTALLER.

TOTALLER has a shared belief around the aesthetic as a destructive, progressively utopian and totalising force. The group is composed of four members – Lesley Guy, Dale Holmes, Lea Torp Nielsen and Chris Fielder. The group attempts to deliver a series of aesthetic shocks through taking risks with categories such as credibility, beauty and style, exploring approaches to these without irony or self-consciousness. They aim to work within the bounds of a new or imagined Dark Age, a space for making that is free from anxiety and allows for new forms of creation.
