Melanie Keen:
My reason for nominating Georgia is that as an artist using performance and moving image, she prefaces the female body as central, as dominant, as material at a moment when women’s bodies are paradoxically subject to immense scrutiny and violation as much as being revered as a powerful collective political force. With the erosion of black spaces and queer spaces her practice attempts to push against this retrenchment in unexpected, bold, coercive ways.

Georgia Lucas-Going is based in London. She studied Fine Art at Leeds Arts University (2007-10) and the Slade School of Fine Art (2015-17).
