Kye Wilson

I am always keen to hear from artists who would be interested in a blog post focusing on their work. Usually, I ask for an artist’s statement and a few images which they would like to showcase, but these guidelines are very flexible and I am open to suggestions. If you would like a post on your work, please do contact: kdoutsiderart@yahoo.com.

This post will focus on the work of Kye Wilson.

Kye Wilson is a visual artist and filmmaker who uses moving image to create short films and video installations that explore the notions of space, self and other. A signature characteristic of his work is the embodiment of (him)self through the medium of video, usually in the form of a female protagonist, character or performer. Wilson has exhibited in cinematic, art gallery, non-gallery/heritage and site-specific environments, nationally and internationally. His work has been selected for broadcast worldwide and has acquired numerous awards and commissions from Festival of Video Art Kinolevchyk; Madrid Festival of Contemporary Audio-Visual Arts (MADATAC) and Hayward Gallery.
