“deftly witty writing” – The Guardian
“first class” – The Telegraph
Kerry priest is an award-winning poet and interdisciplinary artist, researching at the interface of linguistics and sound design. Her pieces have been described as Eco-feminist, often combining digital technologies with deep ecology and ritual. Working with the principle of ‘polyphony’ as a form of entangled practice, her work is an attempt to uncover hidden layers in the lived environment and the unconscious.
Kerry often works collaboratively with artists and communities and her pieces have appeared at the Royal Opera House, the Minack Theatre and on BBC Radio 3. She was named one of Eyewear’s Best New British and Irish Poets 2018. Her poem, ‘Medicine Wheel’, was nominated for the Forward prize and her pamphlet, The Bone Staircase, was published by Live Canon in 2020.
In a former life, Kerry was a DJ for a seminal LGBTQ club night, Twat Boutique and has performed at the Royal Festival Hall, Latitude, Bestival, XOYO, Thekla and many more venues. She uses this experience in electronic music to advocate for women in tech and can often be found mentoring in audio production skills through community radio stations such as Soundart Radio.
