Gaylene Gould is a multidisciplinary artist who creates works that unearth buried stories in places, people and cultures especially those that exist on the margins. Her works are research-led and often participatory, making room for multiple voices alongside her own. She is drawn to public, accessible spaces. She has landed an audio-visual spaceship in public space to collect memories, invited people to talk to themselves on the street and is currently creating a pop-up touring healing well inspired by an ancient well run by a mysterious 17th Century Black woman wellkeeper. Her digital collage artworks blend found and personal images to create new speculative landscapes and symbols.
She has been commissioned by the Tate, V&A, Clore Leadership, Selfridges, Durham University, Moderna Museet Sweden and BAM amongst others and is an award-winning fiction writer and broadcaster. She has created radio documentaries for BBC Radio 4 including Transcendence How Can I Feel Art Again . She is also host of Serpentine podcast series Reworlding and Intimacies that explore radical ways to transform our relationship with the world, each other and ourselves.
