Upritchard, FrancisDate of birth and death: 1976-
Nationality: New Zealander, EnglishUploaded artworks: 32
Francis Upritchard was born in New Zealand and studied at the University of Canterbury. She moved to England in 1998. She lives and works in London.
In December 2001 Upritchard with Luke Gottelier established the artist-run space The Bart Wells Institute in London Fields. In 2003, Upritchard was shortlisted for the Beck's Futures prize. For the prize exhibition she made Save Yourself, a small mummy surrounded by funerary urns which lies on the gallery floor vibrating and moaning. A packet of cigarettes is tucked into its bandages, and a single glass eye can also be seen. Upritchard has also shown drawings, diagrams and notes associating Charles, Prince of Wales with the beast from the Book of Revelation.
She is represented in the UK by Kate MacGarry, and in New Zealand by Ivan Anthony Gallery, Auckland. She has won New Zealand's Walters Prize for art, and produced an artist's book 'Human Problems' with a text by acclaimed author Hari Kunzru. In 2008 it was announced that Upritchard, along with Judy Millar, will be New Zealand's representatives at the 2009 Venice Bienniale. Upritchard's installation will be entitled Save Yourself.
