Matterlurgy is a collaborative practice between London based artists Helena Hunter and Mark Peter Wright. Their work critically and creatively explores the intersections of art, ecology, science and technology. Mark has a PhD in Sound Arts from University of the Arts, London and works across sound, installation and performance. Helena trained at Slade School of Fine Art, London and her practice incorporates text, performance and film.

Their recent works include Rehearsals for Uncertain Futures, a short documentary film about a Sea Ice Simulator used to predict climate futures, screened at Raven Row Gallery and Furtherfield Commons. Geofictions, a project that excavates geo-industrial identities of Teesside Steelworks and its ecologies of obsolescence and waste, was recently featured in the group show Liquid Crystal Display at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima).
