Senior Lecturer, BA Fine Art
Gillian Wyde is an artist and researcher. She is a senior lecturer in Fine Art and is currently course coordinator for the 1st year. Central to Gillian's practice is a critical engagement with contemporary art practices and critical theory with particular reference to technologies, writing, video and film, sound, feminisms and intersectionalities, the internet, queerness, philosophy and popular culture. Working mainly performatively, works tend to get made in response to contexts of location and place, encounter and dialogue(s). Works comment on some of the social and political implications of new technology and practices, often challenging traditional ideas of the art object and means of production or productivity. Processes of appropriation and post-production are constants through most of the work, like perhaps a wild smell or hairy logic.
