Net Warner is a non-binary artist working between London and Southampton. They look at the plasticity of society, and the plasticity of the self

Their practice looks at how we are taught to see, looking toward how the texture of categorisation melts, hardens, and abstracts under the heat of time. Interrogating how the mediums that define our age act as a mimicry of us, Net's work considers how we are redefined by the devices that capture our lived experience. How do we categorise ourselves in a digital age? How are we formed and transformed?

Net co-founded and currently co-direct ZEST Collective (est. 2020). Based in Southampton, ZEST has successfully delivered two Arts Council England funded projects alongside artist-led exhibitions and workshops.
