Platform Instagram Takeover: Siân Williams

Wed. 6 May 2020 — Fri. 31 May 2030

Since lockdown and losing access to her studio, artist Siân Williams has been concentrating on making short films, using her phone, her hands, a patch of floor space and whatever else she may have access to in her flat. Through these films she has been considering touch, proximity, and intimacy – all of which have taken on new meaning.

Using a combination of work made both before and after the lockdown began, Siân will contemplate these things as she attempts to navigate her practice in this new way of being.

Follow Site Gallery on Instagram for Siân's takeover, 6–13 May.

Get to know Siân in this interview from our Meet the Locals archives.
