User Bio

Since 1991 British artist Vicki Bennett has been working across the field of audio-visual collage, and is recognised as an influential and pioneering figure in the still growing area of sampling, appropriation and cutting up of found footage and archives. Working under the name People Like Us, Vicki specialises in the manipulation and reworking of original sources from both the experimental and popular worlds of music, film and radio. People Like Us believe in open access to archives for creative use. In 2006 she was the first artist to be given unrestricted access to the entire BBC Archive. People Like Us have previously shown work at, amongst others, Tate Modern, The Barbican, Centro de Cultura Digital, Maxxi and Sonar, and performed radio sessions for John Peel and Mixing It. She has an ongoing sound art radio show 'DO or DIY' on WFMU. The People Like Us back catalogue is available for free download hosted by UbuWeb. In 2013 Vicki premiered the performance Consequences (One Thing Leads To Another) at transmediale, created a film for live improvising artists/musicians NOTATIONS which toured the UK with TUSK/Sound & Music, a film with 7 artist soundtracks GESTURE PIECE, films for Animate Projects/Channel 4, and a new CD called Don't Think Right, It's All Twice. Vicki had a solo gallery show Shutter at Leeds College of Art in February 2014 and is currently working on a new film/performance Citation City, a project reflecting upon Walter Benjamin’s Arcades Project in relation to 20th Century London.
