Joanne Masding is I am an artist based in Birmingham, UK.

Working primarily in sculpture, I make work to investigate the worth, ownership and production of physical stuff, and how this translates to a world that is growing increasingly digital, immaterial and reproducible.

I'm currently working on 'Make Future Village History', a public artwork for a new housing development in Cardiff, with Persimmon Homes and Studio Response. Recent exhibitions include: In the Peaceful Dome, Bluecoat, Liverpool, 2017-18; Touche Eclat, Workplace, Gateshead, 2017; Plaster Ghost Finger Cast, The New Art Gallery, Walsall, 2017 (solo); image music text, IMT Gallery, London, 2016; stuffs wander off, a shape steps in, Two Queens, Leicester, 2016 (solo). I have been artist in residence at 501 Artspace, Chongqing, China, Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Dublin, Ireland and with Research and Cultural Collections at University of Birmingham. In 2015 I developed a residency with Berlin-based artist Katharina Ludwig, in collaboration with Grand Union, Birmingham. I was awarded a fellowship with John Feeney Charitable Trust in 2016-17. Permanent commission Flimsy Signals, made for developers Bruntwood, launched in summer 2018.

I launched Studio Outlet, which sells things made by artists, in late 2018.
