Tessa Garland Biography
Tessa Garland’s practice incorporates both single screen video and installation work that is concerned with control and surveillance and asks questions about the impact of our increasingly screen obsessed culture. Her work includes using covert surveillance methods as well as reconstructed scenarios where her interest in building unsettling psychological scenarios can unfold.
Tessa Garland’s work has been shown in events, screenings and exhibitions in numerous locations internationally including the ICA, Whitechapel Art Gallery, The Wellcome Trust, Dias Digital Art Space, Denmark, Queens Museum of Art, New York, the MACVAL Contemporary Art Museum, Paris, and the Australian Centre for Moving Image, Melbourne.
Tessa Garland is organiser and curator of the highly regarded International moving image and performance arts festival Visions in the Nunnery, the Nunnery Gallery, London. She has been in receipt of numerous arts awards both to support her own practise and to organise ambitious arts events and exhibitions.
