Spencer is a multidisciplinary Artist with an established practice in Sculpture, Installation, Photography, Moving Image, Sound, and Performance. 


As a global citizen who has resided outside of his country of origin for the last 25 years, Spencer's practice explores the complexities of place, movement, and belonging. As someone that exists in a temporary and transient state, what does it mean to be in outer space within a place?


Spencer's practice and the landscapes of his host nation coexist in a collaborative and symbiotic relationship. He immerses himself within ethereal and uninhabited spaces to spark his creative thought process. Spencer actively seeks out and absorbs the environment, materials, and cultural experiences of his host nation and mixes this up with the data and memory stored on the magnetic tapes of his mainframe brain. Spencer's process culminates with his body, costume, and objects being juxtaposed against sublime and dystopian landscapes to produce outcomes of fantasy, mythology, futurism, and carnival.

Spencer's creative outcomes have been exhibited at Art Institutions and Festivals globally including at Sharjah Art Foundation, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi , Lulea International Film Festival - Sweden, Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, The Whirled Cinema - London, Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival, Tashkeel - Dubai and Sikka Art and Design Festival -Dubai.

Spencer has received numerous awards for his work and was an Artist in Residence at the Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation in 2022 and a collaborative member of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Visiting Artist Programme in 2022-23.

Spencer graduated with a MA Fine Arts (Distinction (D-PG)) from  Falmouth University UK  2024

“If you feel safe in the area you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are not quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.”

David Bowie
