PAUL FARMER is an artist working in digital image, sound and text installation. Film maker and writer.
“I work across and between forms. I have been a professional artist since 1990 and my work also includes theatre, published prose and poetry and performance text, as well as more conventional moving image and sound work.
Although I have been substantially published, the writing aspect of my work is mainly for performance or exhibition. Community arts and socially engaged projects are long-standing parts of my practice.”
“Paul Farmer’s ‘I Shake When He’s Gone from My Door’ is a marvellous piece of writing, lucid yet mysterious…. Fear, anger, despair are delicately pinched up at their corners and bound into the quiet, purposeful sentences…. Another reason for reading anthologies is to welcome exciting new talent when you see it. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s a joy.” – Jenny Turner, Financial Times, reviewing England Calling, pub. Weidenfeld & Nicholson 2001.
