SMFA’s Shona Illingworth, Fine Art Reader and Director of Graduate Studies, has been commissioned for Random Acts, Channel 4’s provocative and boundary pushing short film strand dedicated to the worlds of art, music, dance, animation, spoken word, performance, and every uncategorisable combination in between.
Her film, Searching, which she directed, features in Series 4, Episode 5, from 7th December. For more information go to: http://randomacts.channel4.com/about
The widely exhibited Illingworth works across sound, film, video, photography, drawing and painting. Her work combines interdisciplinary research (particularly with emerging neuropsychological models of memory and critical approaches to memory studies) with publicly engaged practice. She was shortlisted for the prestigious 2016 Jarman Award.
