Claire Orme is an artist, curator and musician. She is founder of Flat38 Gallery, and a co-Director of Margate Festival.

 

Specialising in performance art and sound installation, Claire employs her skills as a pianist and violin player to investigate the narrative contours of spaces and objects. Much of Orme's work is research-led, utilising archive material and interviews to explore her interest in perhaps overlooked rural and urban histories.
