Emily Wardill works with imagined images that structure the way that we understand and communicate histories, religion, our emotional and sexual lives and our ideas around risk. The starting point for Emily Wardill’s films are often historical events or individuals, around which she develops sensual, psychologically charged narratives, in which the instability of language and consciousness, the spectres of technology, and the materiality of memory are recurring themes. Juxtaposing scholarly studies and absurdist puns, political analysis and playful allusions, Wardill creates films that speak a language as suggestive as it is self-willed.
