Gillian Wylde at Focal Point Gallery

Big Screen Southend is pleased to present ‘EYECATCHER’, a selection of video work from seven artists as part of its on-going programme of artist moving image to coincide with Focal Point Gallery’s programme. Falmouth BA(Hons) Fine Art Course Coordinator Gillian Wylde is one of the artists involved.
‘EYECATCHER’ refers to the motive of ‘Big Screen’ as a feature that commands our attention as we enter Elmer Square, reflecting the same purpose of an architectural folly as a focal point to enhance or draw the attention of a viewer within a landscape. Based on Volker Eichelmann’s research around the architectural folly, the programme will also include ‘Follies and Grottoes’ (2003-2006), an extensive video series of architectural sites visited by the artist throughout the U.K.

Within this, Eichelmann refers to the influence of the camera viewfinder in its ability to accentuate the scenic composition of these architectural ornaments.

Using ‘cut and paste’ techniques, Gillian Wylde’s short video occurs on the surface combining data functionalities from different sources that include motor soul browser doings, googlisms, Wikipedia factualities and post-production activities.
