Themes of trauma, neglect and courage are prevalent and are emulated through live performance, installation and lip-syncing. Films showing at the gallery include IL-Widna (2019), a celebrated short film of Wilson's that responds to Margaret Thatcher's homophobic Section 28 legislation. Also showing is Isn’t It a Beautiful World (2021) a film that explores LGBTQIA+ adolescents and our emotional journey to adulthood.
This exhibition sees Wilson develop his practice from Artist Moving Image to Installation and welcomes audiences to immerse themselves physically into his artistic vision for the first time. Wilson collaborates with internationally renowned set designer Tony Hornecker to rebuild the metaphorical worlds in which the films take place as well as choreographer and movement director Chester Hayes, for a special opening night performance.
