Senior Lecturer

Gillian is an artist and researcher. Central to Gillian's practice is an engagement with technologies, the internets, queerness, and performativity. Gillian's art practice and research contributes greatly to her teaching. Her portfolio as an artist includes international exhibitions, commissions and residencies. Gillian's work responds to contexts of place and situation, feels and dialogue(s). Dissent, re-subjectivity and post-production are constants through most of the work.

Recent exhibitions include: John Hansard Gallery, Arnolfini, British Film Institute, Café OTO and ICA, MAC Birmingham, Kulturhus Århus' festival & SceneKunst Denmark, Transmodern Live Art Action Festival, Baltimore; Videotage Hong Kong; Alytus Biennial Lithuania, and Tou Scene Norway.
