Using ideas from magic and witchcraft, create objects that explore our inner lives, our hopes and desires for a better world, with artist and curator Bryony Gillard.

I Am Making Art

These monthly activity sessions are led by artists and take place in the Spike Island Café. Visitors of all ages and abilities can try out new techniques and approaches to making art, from drawing and painting to collage, sculpture and animation and are invited to drop in any time during the session.

Bryony Gillard

Bryony Gillard is an artist and curator based in the south west. Situated between writing, performance, video and exhibition making, Gillard’s practice draws on the notion of ‘constant revision’ — states of being in which structures or ideas can be subverted, dissolved or questioned. 

Bryony has an MFA from the Dutch Art Institute, School for Art Praxis. Recent projects include a solo exhibition at Turf Projects, Croydon, a group exhibition exploring the writings of Virginia Woolf at Tate St.Ives; Pallant House, Chichester; and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; and The Atlantic Project, Plymouth (all 2018).

Her work has been included in a range of national and international contexts including: Documnt, New York/Berlin; BB15, Linz; Northern Charter, Newcastle; Casa de Pova, São Paulo; Upominki, Rotterdam.
