Gillian Wylde works mainly with video, text, objects, and performance. Her projects respond to peculiarities of a site or a place, encounter and dialogue(s) and explore simple interconnections of agency. Central within these processes of response are properties of the pathetic or cheapo, instances of featurelessness, nowotony and/or petty conjectures of the queer. Critical investigations of multivalent performance activities or forms of energy (such as mechanical, electrical, or chemical energy), the body (human or animal) and material thing in relation to the video camera are constants through most of the work like maybe a savage smell or hairy logic.
Gillian is an artist and Senior Lecturer at University College Falmouth incorporating Dartington College of Art. Recent projects have been made for Transmodern Live Art Action Festival Baltimore, Lounge Gallery London, Midlands Art Centre & Eastside Projects, Birmingham, Alytus Biennial Lithuania, Tao Scene Norway, GeekFest, Dorset, South Hill Park, Bracknell, Ptarmigan & TEAK Helsinki Finland and CCA Gallery Glasgow.
