Mem Morrison collaborates with a range of multi-disciplinary artists to produce performances in a variety of media for theatres and site-specific spaces. His work expands on an impressive back catalogue of memory and personal history to reflect on a wider universal human experience, often revealing previously untold truths. Whether lamenting the break-up of a relationship or confronting his real-life classroom bullies, Mem has established his own original visual narrative with an innate sense of style.
