Gin Dunscombe's work is driven by contemporary issues of society and consciousness, sometimes confronting the cultural zeitgeist, and provides opportunities for the viewer to participate or observe proposals for engagement. Building on a strong foundation in art history and social commentary, Gin Dunscombe often takes a taxonomic approach to making art.

 

Gin Dunscombe works in a wide range of media including 3D, film (super 8 and video), photography, printmaking and letterpress to produce events, situations, artefacts or archives which engage the viewer in an ongoing dialogue of awareness and appreciation for the world we live in today.

 

She has extensive experience of cultural event design, organisation and management, ranging from the Lewisham Culture and Urban Development Commission with Charles Landry to a collaboration with Benjamin Zander for 500 people.
