Jemima Wyman

Country: United Kingdom

Jemima Wyman is a contemporary artist who lives and works between Brisbane and Los Angeles. Wyman completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts (in Visual Arts) with Honours at the Queensland University of Technology. In 2007, she graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from The California Institute of Arts in Los Angeles; this study was made possible with the generous support of an Anne and Gordon Samstag Scholarship.

In 2005 CamLab was formed, a collaboration between Wyman and Anna Mayer. Their most recent exhibition was held at Leslie Dick, an artist-run space in Los Angles; this exhibition included a satellite performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Wyman's individual art practice incorporates various mediums including installation, video, performance, photography and painting. Her most recent artworks utilize these mediums to specifically focus on visually-based resistance strategies employed within contemporary 'irregular military', in an aim to explore the formal and psychological potentiality of camouflage in reference to collective identity.

Jemima is represented by Milani Gallery and has exhibited throughout Australia and internationally. Past exhibitions were held at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Melbourne), Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), Plimsoll Gallery (Hobart), Westbeth Gallery Kozuka (Japan), 40000 (Chicago) and Steve Turner Contemporary Gallery (Los Angeles). Wyman's work will be exhibited on Cockatoo Island as apart of the 17th Biennale of Sydney | THE BEAUTY OF DISTANCE: Songs of Survival in a Precarious Age.
