Vicky Roden

My current practice is heavily video based – working with the moving image feels very natural to me, particularly because of my background in media. I also like working with found objects and odd, discarded items like postcards and birthday cards, and creating slightly other-worldly situations for the audience to engage in. I particularly  enjoy the point where reality and fiction meet – my first exhibition piece ‘Real Imaginary Friends!’ was an attempt to emulate the place in the mind where I go whenever I read ‘On the Road’ by Jack Kerouac, and the odd feeling of camaraderie I feel towards other fans of the novel, the feeling of never quite being alone. The assemblage on the table echoed back to the multitude of bits and pieces I’d put on the walls of my home – an assortment of ticket stubs, doodles, found items ranging from broken jewellery and bits of car and watches to notes and torn playing cards, plus postcards and photographs.
