Rosalind Fowler is an artist and filmmaker with a background in visual art and anthropology. Her work explores the politics and poetics of place and belonging in the contemporary English landscape through the prisms of folk culture, alternative communities, science fiction, pre-history and dreams. Through quasi-ethnographic forms of enquiry she combines real lived experiences and narratives with performance, fictionalization, writing and the language of the subconscious in her work. Her interests lie in experimenting with the potentialities of documentary and fiction filmmaking to investigate the boundaries between the real and imagined, visible and invisible within culture.
Her work has shown widely, including at the ICA, William Morris gallery, BFI, Plymouth arts centre, Milton Keynes gallery, Pumphouse gallery, BBC Birmingham, and Fundação Manuel António da Mota in Porto. She has recently completed as artist residency at the William Morris gallery, where her work will show in the Autumn.
