Past Artist In Residence
Jemima Wyman is an Australian artist working with installed performance based video and painting. She graduated from Queensland University of Technology with first class honors and is represented by Bellas Gallery in Australia. Wyman has exhibited in-group and solo shows throughout Australia and California. In 2004, she received a grant from the Australia Council for the Arts to complete a studio residency at 18th Street where she worked on her project, Minnie Peep. Her current work focuses on the physicality of the body and the particular relationships the body has with designated spaces and objects, emphasizing various performance characters and ‘screen sets’. Through installed video performances Wyman explores the interrelationships between fiction and reality, by presenting virtual space within the screen in association with actual objects/bodies located in the gallery. These lines of inquiry also result in photographic works and DVD editions. She currently lives and works in Brisbane, Queensland.
