Picture This commission with Emily Wardill in Venice Biennale
20th June 2011
Emily Wardill's Sick Serena and Dregs and Wreck and Wreck as part of the 54th Biennale di Venezia
Picture This is proud to announce that Sick Serena and Dregs and Wreck and Wreck is currently on display as part of Bice Curiger's exhibition entitled ILLUMInations in the Arsenale at the the 54th Biennale di Venezia.
Emily Wardill's 16mm film Sick Serena and Dregs and Wreck and Wreck employs imagery from the tradition of British ecclesiastic stained-glass painting to create a complex and richly layered film combining humour with a deep sense of unease. It was produced as part of a Bristol Mean Time residency in partnership with Film London Artist's Moving Image Network.
Emily Wardill was the first Bristol Mean Time artist in residence at Picture This.
Bristol Mean Time was an opportunity for a London based artist to spend three months in Bristol developing a new film and video work.
