"Pierce Starre is an artist unafraid of pushing boundaries, challenging hierarchies and producing site-specific performances and works of art that leave a lasting impression on the viewer" - Peter Bonnell, Senior Curator, QUAD
Pierce Starre (They/Them) is a live performance artist based in Liverpool, UK. Their work predominantly explores their cultural experiences as a queer, working class, neurodivergent, heritage signer with Deaf parents, within a broader social and political context. Their artworks provide the viewer with an opportunity to be immersed within an embodied experience, creating a platform for connection, reflection, and discussion.
In January 2020 Pierce performed as part of the CO-CREATION LIVE FACTORY “Dissenting Bodies Marking Time” at Venice International Performance Art Week. Their performance, Reflection (2020), was shared as part of Performistanbul’s Stay LIVE at Home project; the work has been added to the British Library collection.
Pierce has received commissions from METAL Culture, Heart of Glass, DADAFest, Unshut Festival, Vivid Projects, Liverpool Independents Biennial, Word of Warning and Disability Arts Online and has shared live performance work as part of ]Performance Space[, Word of Warning and Performance Platform.
Pierce also runs Performance N’ Tha, an artist led platform that has developed national and international recognition as a vital platform supporting radical performance.
