Lily Hunter Green is a sound installation artist and contemporary composer who resides between London and Suffolk.
Lily has two key focuses in her work: the environment and marginality. Making her work as accessible as possible to audiences and participants is central to her practice.
Lily graduated from the University of Brighton in 2013 and has continued exhibiting and producing work ever since. While still a student, her piece Decomposed was selected by the Brighton International Festival (2012) as part of House Open exhibition in the Brighton Dome. Following this, in November 2013 Lily was invited to take part in Aldeburgh International Poetry Festival where she exhibited her interactive sound installation A12 (which explores the cultural differences and similarities at either end of the A12 extending from Gants Hill to Saxmundham in Suffolk) in SNAP HQ at Snape Maltings in Suffolk. Also, in November 2013, her original composition Decomposed was featured on BBC Radio 3’s Private Passions as part of Maggi Hambling’s personal selection. In 2014 her installation Decomposed evolved into Bee Composed, an environmental-based installation, which involved composing with the sounds harvested from live bees living in a redundant piano. Bee Composed formed part of SNAP at the Aldeburgh Festival alongside the other exhibiting artist Anya Gallacio. Meanwhile, Bee Composed’s ‘sister’ installation Composed was exhibited at the nearby Alde Valley Spring Festival: the result of an onsite artists residency. In 2015, Lily was commissioned by Essex Cultural Diversity Project to develop an installation: Harvest, working in collaboration with the Jewish Community based in Essex. Harvest was exhibited at METAL Southend’s Village Green Festival (July 2015). Lily is currently developing 3 installations for 2016. This includes Sea Change, a site-specific installation for Landguard Fort, which is due to be exhibited at Felixstowe Book Festival 2016.
