Luke Drozd is an artist and cultural producer originally from the UK. His work explores historical, folkloric and speculative narratives through collage, collecting and collaborative improvisation. The results are multi-disciplinary artistic works including sculpture, print, performance and sound. He also produces audio works under the moniker of Misery Bacon, and as one half of the spoken-weird duo Reet Maff’l alongside artist/musician Andy Abbott. He is the host of the cross-genre radio show Thunks and Thuds on Bergen's Vers Libre and currently co-runs the experimental cassette label Bloxham Tapes.
