Jenny Swindells

I am a multi disciplinary visual artist working in 2D mediums, film, theatre, live art and installation. My practice is essentially storytelling using reportage and journal writing. The work I try to make looks at human behaviour, how people move and react in day to day situations, confrontations and/or happiness. I make pictures with words about daily experiences and observations. Sometimes the pictures are based on stories people have told me.

I find things that people/the public have left behind. Graffiti, lost items, litter , etc. I like finding things in a town or city that are ephemeral — like the way sunlight bounces off windows and reflects on to a building opposite but only at a certain time of day.

Politics and gender politics are key themes in my work. Recently I have been thinking more about cause and effect, what are the consequences when a government issues a new policy? How does this affect the behaviour of the constituents?
