Studio Lunches was an autonomous podcast project by Chris MacInnes, supported by CCA. Its goal was to open up artists’ practices within Glasgow through conversation, exploring the diverse, obscure and intriguing interests that reside at the heart of this. For this episode I met up with Mathew Parkin to talk about his practice. Mathew uses documentary and archival techniques within his video works as a means of exploring the elusive subjective histories of those close to him. The discussion here begins with an exploration of intimacy within video art and online. From there we weave our way through ideas of high cinema versus home video, as well as the tropes of iPhone footage and YouTube videos. Mathew helps me to unpick how love and vulnerability are lived and presented within our media-centred lives and in doing so offers us a space of comfort and touching awkwardness within the slick digital spaces we inhabit.
