Gillian Wearing

11 Feb 2016

Turner Prize-winning British artist Gillian Wearing – the Invited Artist for HOUSE 2016 – will present Your Views, a global collaborative work which captures a snapshot of 'views' from windows across the world.

Wearing examines our public personas and private lives, describing her working method as ‘editing life’. Using photography and video to record people’s confessions, her art explores disparities between individual and collective experience. Drawing on fly-on-the-wall documentaries, reality TV and theatrical techniques, she explores how we present ourselves to the world, as well as her involvement with extensive self-portraiture.

Wearing won the 1997 Turner Prize and is an OBE and Royal Academician.

HOUSE 2016

A series of new artist commissions with partners Outside In and Photoworks will be exhibited across the city, linked to the subjects explored by Wearing and this year’s Brighton Festival theme of ‘home’, accompanied by a community drawing project with Children's Laureate Chris Riddell
