Mathew Parkin is an artist, writer and home cook mainly working in moving-image with family and friends. They are particularly interested in autobiography, accent, intimacy, and speech acts in public. Their work is like an armpit, personal and intimate, of the body and relationships. Mathew Parkin tries to resist dominant forms of media and sit against professionalised forms of moving image production through DIY and home video techniques, as well as queer crip anlayisis.

He has recently been in residence at Art House (Wakefield, UK), CCA Glasgow (Glasgow, UK), and Hospitalfield Arts (Arbroat, UK). Recent public projects have been with LUX Scotland (Glasgow, UK), Tramway (Glasgow, UK), MAP (Glasgow, UK), Grand Union (Birmigham, UK), V22 (London, UK), The Tetley (Leeds, UK), and IMT Gallery (London, UK).

Mathew Parkin is welcomed as part of the international exchange program between Glasgow Sculpture Studios and Triangle France - Astérides.
A 7 years old exchange program realized in partnership with Glasgow Sculpture Studios, with the support of the Glasgow City Council and Creative Scotland.
