Taking over our Instagram account June 2015 was Amanda Loomes, whose co-commission for Photoworks and HOUSE 2015 showed in Brighton, May 2015.
Amanda Loomes joined us for week in June 2015, to give an insight into her practice and daily life. Amanda joins a list of previous guest Instagram editors including Simon Roberts, Erica Scourti and Murray Ballard.
Amanda Loomes was a Civil Engineer until 1996 when she went on to study Fine Art, graduating from The Royal College of Art in 2006. She lives and works in Dorking, Surrey. Amanda’s work considers the frailty and resilience of human endeavour; in particular, work that goes unnoticed or becomes erased or undone.
Usually working with the short experimental documentary form, Amanda wryly utilises the redemptive power of non-linear video editing in its ability to speed up, reverse, repeat and to stop. Working with and through people is a key part of her practice, often encouraging people to make a creative response to the situation in which we find ourselves, partly out of curiosity and because of the reciprocity this sets up.
