Rhiannon Evans is a socially engaged artist practitioner and researcher based in Oxfordshire, UK.
Using constructed and everyday objects and actions, she creates intimate events that celebrate and create private and collective contemporary folklore.
These experiences employ conversation, coincidence and chance encounters to explore private and public relational space within local and on-line landscapes.
Often working with happenstance audiences, her practice encourages contingency, spontaneity and playfulness.
She documents events using photography, video, sound recordings, drawing, painting and autoethnographic narrative.
She has worked in community arts since 2011 and previously facilitated workshops in a range of disciplines. She encourages advocacy, agency and authorship of participants and collaborators.
She has ethnographic experience and oral history training, a professional background in commercial botanical science research and development.
