Imogen Knight

My practice is concerned with our current fracture point, as we substitute real place for virtual space. My collaborative projects and their objectives are stirred by our contemporary re-alignment with Romantic values.

Profile

I am very friendly, diligent, and I have a unique ability to be independent in many situations. I am also very organised, always meeting deadlines, and maintaining faultless attendance during secondary education, committing to a part-time job as a Sales Advisor for two and a half years, as well as consistent engagement in my Foundation year at UAL Central Saint Martins. I am highly creative, working well with team dynamics and subsequently contributing well to my working environment through assisting and helping others. I have exemplified these capabilities through work experience at Knollmead Primary School with Year 1 pupils, as well as assisting Year 6’s transitioning into Year 7 at Coombe Girls’ School over the summer. Furthermore, I have raised money for my local charity LinkAble through campaigns in my area working with my NCS team. Having studied Fine Art, History and English Literature at A-Level, alongside producing an EPQ critiquing the current state of the contemporary art world, I have gained greater knowledge in the collaborative arts. I have demonstrated my passion through this field of work through regular involvement with art-based courses in London and curation at my local gallery The Lightbox. In progressing to a Foundation Fine Art year at UAL Central Saint Martins, my independence, experience and understanding within this industry has rapidly developed. Through showing work and curating at UAL’s Lethaby Park art exhibition, as well as invigilating GCSE and A-Level exams this summer, I have furthered my leadership skills and working well within a team. Currently, I hope for this to be consolidated even more during my Fine Art Degree course at Leeds University. Furthermore, I express vital interest in giving something back to the Leeds community by becoming involved in Leeds’ electoral poll as a Ballot Counting Assistant. This has also proved evident in my previous voluntary work as a design intern for MYO global, a care-giving app connecting care-givers, patients and families, which I do alongside my studies. Additionally, I am regularly exhibiting my artwork, and, recently, am a finalist of DegreeArt’s Signature Art Prize, making it to the top 6 within my category, deliberated from over 500 entries from 45 universities in 16 countries.
