• Artist Talk & Screening: Jayne Wilson

    Wednesday 1 March, 6-7.30pm

    Inherent Process

    Artist, filmmaker Jayne Wilson will discuss the her work and influences as well as the selected artists films as part of Fabrica’s window screenings.

    Programmed by Jayne Wilson the screening of artists films highlights the artistic processes and different artistic voices that emerge from shared themes and structures. From the experimental process of working to the montage of photofilm and the juncture between analogue and digital.

    Jayne Wilson produces carefully researched films that tread a line between the informative and the playful. Often dominated by a fascination with the inventions of the modern industrial age her films draw on a prevailing interest in archive imagery and montage.

    Her films have screened at galleries and festivals including WRO Media Art Biennale (Poland), The Anthology Film Archive (New York), Cinecity and London Short Film Festival among others.
