Dawn Felicia Knox is a cross-disciplinary artist working to create interventions and multi-layered installations that explore toxicity, remediation and transformation. She has received seven Art Council England awards and numerous commissions resulting in installations, films and exhibitions across the UK and internationally.

As a curator and facilitator, she has worked with internationally renowned archives and organisations including the Amber Collective in dialogue with current artists and activists to create wider conversations about ethics, representation and collectivism.

Dawn often collaborates with scientists and other artists. After a decade collaborating with archaeologists, she saw firsthand the patterns of human endeavour through the way that every age is marked by the different toxins found in the soil. Her work now strives to restore the balance, learning from the dynamic ecosystems we all inhabit. Through a 2022 commission from BALTIC and a further ACE research grant, she is researching the way plant and fungi work together to undo the toxic residue of industrialisation.
