Edwin Mingard

I am a visual artist. I work principally with moving image, making standalone artists’ film and installations. My work often takes on mainstream and accessible forms – documentary, music video, glossy magazine – both because it is important to me to engage with people who are not at home in a gallery environment, and because I want to question the value systems underpinning those forms. I often produce work with small groups of friends, or within a discrete community or interest group, for artistic reasons: I want to celebrate and make visible the joy of the filmmaking process itself and explore its value as a tool for individual and social change. I work using processes designed to enable diverse groups of people to make work together, and to explore wider questions around the use of moving image technologies. This focus is mirrored in the subject matter of my work, which deals with themes around technology, our social environment and relationships with one another.
