Pierce Starre (b. 1984, Liverpool, UK) is a Performance Artist working and living in the East Midlands.

Pierce situates his personal experiences within a broader social and political context. His artworks act as a conduit, providing the viewer with an opportunity to be immersed within an embodied experience, creating a platform for connection, reflection and discussion. He is interested in the immediacy of live art and its ability to engage the artist and the viewer, in a transformative exchange. His previous work have explored themes of restriction and identity, and have incorporated elements of stillness, duration and endurance.
