Interview with Gillian Wearing
Interview: Gillian Wearing
As part of this year’s Brighton Festival, Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing (b1963) will be premiering her new film, A Room With Your Views, part of her collaborative, global film project, Your Views, for which she asked people – everyone – from around the world to film and submit a short clip of their curtains or blinds opening and the view from their window.
Wearing, whose work explores our public personas and private lives, describes her working method as “editing life”. She uses photography and film, alongside theatrical staging techniques, to record people’s confessions and present herself in various guises and with various masks.
She spoke to Studio International about the ideas behind her project.
