Area of expertise

Wayne Lloyd performs the plots of films employing inventive and engaging narrative devices and tropes to generate surprising tensions and humour. The performances often culminate in a residual exhibition that can embrace a variety of disciplines such as drawing, photography, and even dance. The renditions have a ‘nonart’ quality, and their play of formality and informality obstructs pre-arranged destinations for the arrival of meaning. The result is an enjoyable mix of activity, storyline and stand-up.

 ‘Wayne Lloyd cuts to the heart of cinema's story telling lineage, whilst focusing on the intrinsic differences between watching and describing a film. Lloyd’s recent works provide a refreshing alternative to film criticism, embodying a spirit more akin to an enthusiastic retelling to friends and with it a healthy relish of violence, sex and wit.’
