Edwin Mingard works across moving image, photography, illustration, installation and live interaction to explore socio-political issues. He works collaboratively through every stage of the process, using the production as an opportunity to share skills and knowledge. His latest moving image work, An Intermission, was made in collaboration with a group of young people experiencing homelessness in Stoke-On-Trent who are both the subjects of the film, and the filmmakers themselves.
Mingard is currently working on a film that depicts the experience of navigating the UK's border regime. Told through 26 different vignettes, the work is made in collaboration with a network of people who are victims of the UK Home Office's Hostile Environment policy.
Edwin Mingard lives and works in London. He is the founder of Deptford Cinema and Satellite, a moving image production company that supports moving image artists from under-represented backgrounds. His work has been commissioned by the British Film Institute, DocSociety, the Guardian, RSA, Arts Council England, Channel 4, Wellcome Trust and Joseph Rowntree Foundation, among others. He was recently selected for 2020’s Bloomberg New Contemporaries.
Gasworks Studio Residencies are a response to outbreak of Covid-19, which has caused the postponement our international residency programme. Until the programme can resume, the residency studios have been made available to London-based artists and writers who are currently unable to afford their own dedicated workspace.
