About Emily Wardill

Emily Wardill is British and was born in 1977. Today she is primarily based in Marseille. She is a graduate from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design where she is now a Senior Lecturer.

Wardill primarily works with film and video, showing them as projections in specially staged spaces. Taking her point of departure in the relationship between materiality and ideas she works in an original, humorous, critical manner, mixing a wide range of genres. She often uses formal devices and expressions from various existing film genres, e.g. documentary film, televised theatre and melodramas.
