Ash Mcnaughton (B.1990) is a Scottish artist working primarily in Performance Art. 

Working with their body through action, gesture, movement, and sound; they explore psychological, physical, & spiritual states – in dialogue with everyday objects and social contexts – entering into sensorial and synergetic exchange between internal & external materials, space, and time. 

Through ritualistic actions, they seek to dissolve boundaries between the known and unknown, by uncovering and disrupting limitations within objects and narratives, in an attempt to find honesty in that which lies in-between.

Ash obtained their BA Hons in Sculpture from Grays School of Art (2013) and MA in Performance (Contemporary Art Practice) from the Royal College of Art (2018). 

Currently, they are Project Assistant at ]performance s p a c e[ and facilitate workshops with young people and students which have been hosted by Grays School of Art, Tate, Whitechapel Gallery, And Middlesex University. They are a co-organiser of SITE and a member of the international Anam Cara collective. They have performed at various festivals and exhibitions including The Aberdeen Art Gallery (Aberdeen, Scotland, UK), Haddo House Arts Festival (Ellon, Scotland, UK), Venice International Performance Artweek (Venice, Italy), Electrocamp Festival (Mestre, Italy), Revolve Festival (Uppsala, Sweden), Whitechapel Gallery (London, UK), Tempting Failure (Croydon, England, UK), Salvage Festival (Folkestone, England, UK).
