Information

Bryony Gillard (she/they) is an artist, curator and educator and a PhD Candidate at University of Plymouth (School Art, Architecture and Design). Situated between writing, workshops, performance, moving image and exhibition making, her practice reflects on events, states of being, materials and organisms that refuse or resist normative capitalist structures and temporalities. This can include thinking with/through grief, sickness or erotic autonomy, engaging with materials such as sewage, seaweed or auto-fiction and working with genealogies of feminist labour that are elusive, messy and entangled in contemporary concerns. Her current research centres the politics of waste — as matter both in and out of place.
Recent projects include a solo exhibition at Jerwood Arts (London, 2021), a commission with the University of Bristol (2022) and a performance for Playbill (Amsterdam, 2023).

Her work has been commissioned and presented on a variety of national and international platforms including ESTUARY (Kent), Holden Gallery (Manchester), Cinema Maison at BB15 (Linz), Ocean Archive Programme at TBA21 Academy (Venice), Tate St.Ives (Cornwall), Arnolfini (Bristol), The Royal Albert Memorial Museum (Exeter), FLATLAND Projects (Hastings) and Turf Projects (Croydon). She is an associate lecturer on MA Fine Art at University of Gloucestershire and BA Fine Art at University of the West of England and she is co-director of Perennial an artist-led space in Bristol, U.K.
