Carron Little is Scottish American and lives in Chicago, USA. She works as an interdisciplinary artist creating public engagement projects for cities and neighborhoods. Her work starts with interviewing the public. After one to one interviews with people she writes poetry inspired by the conversation. The poetry becomes the starting point for performance, sculpture and an interdisciplinary art practice. Carron works in the persona of queen of luxuria who has a conceptual practice defined by modes of deconstructing power.
