Growing up in Orkney and now living in Edinburgh, Harry Josephine Giles is a writer and performer whose work generally happens in the crunchy places where performance and politics get muddled up. Working in participatory performances, including one-to-ones, installations, street sideshows, interventions and longer interactive shows in theatre spaces, their work is about what it feels like to live under capitalism, and how to survive and resist in a violent world. For this commission, they offer a small zine for creatively watching and rewatching films: 14 Ways to Watch a Film.
Jade Montserrat’s work is a fracture in the linear narrative of consumption and a rigorous critique of the way cultural production scars bodies and constructs histories, exposing the perceptions of the Other as weighted responsibility in need of retort. Skirting social activism by gesturally and texturally ascertaining new ground for politicized territories manifest through performance, film, installation, sculpture, print and text. Here, Jade gives a reading of her forthcoming text Breath. Work.
Born in Edinburgh and based in Cardiff, Cinzia Mutigli’s work uses text, performance, still and moving imagery to link autobiography to wider cultural histories, considering how domestic, social, political and popular culture aspects of our environment interact to impact our persona, our psychologies and our sense of place in the world. Through image and sound, Cinzia here presents a digital space titled, Sorry, Marti Pellow, my mind’s made up by the way that I feel.
