Bodyscapes is a collection of new films by Japanese artists whose use of the body is central to their work – either as a landscape, a political metaphor or method of expression – the body acts as a vehicle and subject to communicate ideas. This will be screened in The Quarterhouse Auditorium 4-6pm Saturday 23rd March and the curator, Jamie Wyld will be talking about the screening in the Quarterhouse Clearing at 4pm - 5pm.
Jamie Wyld is a curator with more than 18 years experience of working in the arts. Together with moving image artist Ben Rivers, and artist and curator Laura Mousavi, Jamie established videoclub in 2005 in response to the lack of artists’ film platforms and support for emerging practitioners.
Jamie has held numerous roles in the arts and cultural sector, including Programme Curator at digital culture agency Lighthouse; Digital Arts Programmer at Showroom Cinema in Sheffield; and Visual Arts Officer at Arts Council England.
In addition to his role at videoclub, Jamie is Director of creative collective The Nimbus Group, which creates experiences using digital media. He is also Director of This is Wyld, a creative agency working with the cultural sector to support exhibitions, commissions, touring, outreach and education projects, fundraising and business development.
