Layla Khoo is a multimedia 3D artist, specialising in ceramics and site specific installations. Her work is responsive – responding to ideas, events or collections of objects. Layla's work develops from this initial response, considering how this can be interpreted in a contemporary way within the context of her material practice. She chooses to create work in ceramic for it’s broad range of historical connotations, from everyday tableware, to satire and sculpture. Layla is particularly interested in creating participatory artworks to further engage audiences in the narratives she works with.  

Layla has previously worked with collections within the National Trust, independent museums, with diverse communities and created permanent sculpture for the Forestry Commission. She is currently working on a new experimental body of more personal work supported by an Arts Council England Developing Your Creative Practice grant, and has begun a practice based PhD with University of Leeds considering the impact of participatory contemporary art on visitor engagement within heritage settings.
