Zoë Mc Pherson is an interdisciplinary artist based between Brussels and Berlin.

Their kaleidoscopic output channels a myriad of sources and research including Inuit culture, hybridity, Kurdish feminism, polyrhythms and the practice of Cat’s Cradle.

‘String Figures’ is an ongoing trans-global art project fusing electronic sound, ethnomusicological research, video art and choreography into a rich audiovisual tapestry that collapses worlds, histories and timeframes. Released on SVS Records in March 2018 with a series of films directed by Alessandra Leone, the album explores an array of dualities – traditional/contemporary, organic/electronic, historical/futuristic – with its core theme of string as one of the most ancient and playful art forms with seemingly infinite possibilities.

Her kinetic AV performance occupies a singular space at the intersection between forward-thinking club music, audio-visual culture and sound art, with recent performances including Berlin Boiler Room, Eupen Meakusma Festival, Amsterdam De School and Nottingham Contemporary. An associate artist at Beursschouwburg Brussels, she is currently collaborating with choreographer David Hernandez on a new work which will be premiered at STUK Leuven in 2019.
