Aimée Neat works with performance, print, sound and moving image to create aphoristic vignettes and installations. Borrowing from real life, she has in some sense attempted to be the television presenter she used to assist as well as the sad faces of Justin Bieber. In ongoing audio performance series The Clare & Dave Show Podcast, Aimée's character-presenters Clare & Dave are deep in delusional crisis, forever stuck in their attempt to be mainstream entertainment. Whether fixating on coffee, or transforming into cartoons reminiscent of childhood nostalgia, Aimée is stuck in a feedback loop of attempt, archetype, lifestyle, fiction, failure, authenticity and intimacy.
Originally from the Midlands, Aimée is a London based artist with a BA Hons in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins and an MFA in Artists Film & Moving Image from Goldsmiths. She is one of the founders of the inter-generational, multi national female moving image collective Ballpark and has created radio programs for Resonance FM and the BBC. Exhibitions have included the London Comedy Film Festival Artists in Comedy at the BFI. Aimée also produces and presents the Her.They radio show where she champions female identifying and non-binary music.
