Emily Wardill was born in 1977 in Rugby, England and currently lives and works in London. She is a Senior Lecturer at Central Saint Martins College of Art. Working primarily in film, Wardill explores how social meanings are projected onto objects and then proceeds to deconstruct and reverse them. Some of her most recent work includes, "Full Firearms", "Game Keepers without Game", and "Sick Serena and Dregs and Wreck and Wreck". Tom Burr was introduced to her work through Florence Derieux at FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, and finds associations between Wardill's art and Yvonne Rainer's choreography.
