An exhibition by Jemima Hoadley in collaboration with Camilla Greenwell, as part of Artist Archive.
I Am Not Static is a personal exploration of falling and recovery, using movement, conversation, photography, and video as storytelling. The work archives Jemima – as she enters peri-menopause – intrigued and repelled by her own form, curious with the strangeness of the rebound of her flesh, as she repeatedly falls.
Jemima began this project in June 2020 during worldwide lockdown and later that year entered a collaboration with photographer Camilla Greenwell, who was just starting to explore the moving image as an art form. Jemima and Camilla’s collaboration gave them an opportunity to delve deeper into their practices, creating a body of materials in new disciplines.
This Material Archive is an opportunity to share some of Jemima and Camilla’s unfinished work that would otherwise have remained a personal project unseen by anyone and potentially lost.
Through the archive Jemima is in dialogue with her body, with time, moving with her 10-year-old daughter (just on the cusp of puberty) and in conversation with a childhood friend. This is a time capsule of 2020-2021 and the process of ageing during global lockdown. At a time of being physically static, time was not standing still – a cycle of falling and rising, from ashes, to ashes.
