Lives and works in London
chloe.turpin@icloud.com






Chloe Turpin is a London-based artist and singer who primarily works across writing, video and performance. Engaging in experimental speech and storytelling, her work explores the connections between scenario and desire, questioning poetics of the body and the political voice. She holds a Masters in Performance from Brighton University, UK and a Bachelor in Fine Art from UQAM, Montreal, Canada. Since 2012, she’s also been working as a vocalist with other artists such as Cally Spooner (Performa 13, NYC; KW Institute, DL; Tate Britain Live, London) and Pil and Galia Kollectiv (Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam). She is currently studying on the MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths University, London.
