In A State of [Movement against Resistance] by Matthew Pickering
In his Random Acts short film In A State Of…, fine artist Matthew Pickering explores the anxieties induced by hospital environments through a combination of sculpture, performance and sound design.
Matthew is a fine artist and filmmaker based in Newcastle upon Tyne. He recently graduated from Newcastle University with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and has exhibited in solo and group shows in the UK and internationally.
Working across video, installation and photography, his current practice explores the vulnerability of memory and perception. Unfolding in surreal environments, the hypothetical narratives within his video installations examine the complex intersections of autobiographical memory, account, fact and fiction.
