Jennifer R. Wicks
Jennifer Wicks is a contemporary artist, working with film/ video, sculpture and music. Her work incorporates themes of memory, nostalgia and loss and draws on elements of liminality. Her practice demonstrates her continued interest in the interplay between sound, image and memory to investigate the aesthetics of images, the materiality of film, the use of new and appropriated material and how this subverts meaning and narrative, her installations often exploring sound and space and the intersections between the mediums of film and sculpture.
Jennifer Wicks received her Masters at the Glasgow School of Art and since then has gone on to present work both nationally and internationally. Wicks has shown work in both solo and group presentations including Trace out the threads, follow their convulsions, CCA Glasgow (2018) a collaboration with Scottish-based quartet The One Ensemble; Between preservation and immanent decay, Glasgow International (2018); In September Dawns I hardly breath, Pipe Factory (2017); Generation Scotland (2014). She has collaborated on various projects UK and Berlin with record label Contort Yourself (2014 to present) and in 2012 was Leverhulme Trust Artist in Residence AIR-024 at Glasgow University, The Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SSCJR).
