Manush John

Artist, Researcher, Filmmaker

I am an artist and filmmaker with a keen interest in the body, and its relationship with space. I’ve conceived, designed and installed multiple site specific art installations that invite people to explore human systems. Over the last 10 years I have been using film as a tool of communication for numerous organisations that work with the marginalised; looking into issues of education, empowerment and sustainability. Some of my more recent work involves smaller self-initiated art experiments, particularly with film. My interest in experimental film, and film as an archive, has come about from a growing need to preserve, by way of facsimile, a rapidly changing environment from the perspective of a culturally conditioned operator.
