What to expect at this event

Made in 1980, Jigsaw sought to depict a little-known condition. Forty years later, Illuminating the Wilderness speaks to continuing dialogue between artists’ film and neurodivergence.

Robina Rose’s film Jigsaw focuses on the preoccupations of a group of autistic children in a specialist school in London. Rose’s immersive style engages with the content of the children’s activities bringing the audience into contact with the structure and content of their thoughts and actions. Experimental methods, such as detailed close-ups and drawn-out scenes, encourage contemporary reflection on how neurodiversity is understood.

Exploratory film, Illuminating the Wilderness is a new work made by Project Art Works’ artists Kate Adams and Tim Corrigan, in collaboration with neurodiverse artists.

The film follows a unique trip to Glen Affric in the Scottish Highlands and a shared investigation of this remote Scottish glen, highlighting pleasures and challenges of neurodiverse responses to the landscape. Unscripted interactions are revealed between this unique community, away from the attitudinal and social barriers faced in their everyday lives, highlighting the power of cultural inclusion.

Filmed and directed collaboratively by Project Artworks, who were shortlisted for the 2021 Turner Prize. Find out about the process behind the making of the film here: [].
