Mathew Wayne Parkin

Mathew Wayne Parkin is an artist who lives and works in Glasgow. They mainly work in moving image, platforming and text, working in and against institutions. They are particularly interested in autobiography and how to support various bodies to inhabit space.

Often they work with friends, lovers, peers and family both in the production and as the subject of moving image work. Recurring themes are the body, accessibility, class, intimacy, geography, provisionality, queerness, sex and kinship. They are trying to resist dominant forms of media and sit against professionalised forms of moving image production.
