Jane was born in Rustington, West Sussex, UK. Trained as a typographer by the University of Reading, England, Jane Glennie practiced for many years as a jobbing freelance designer. Moving closer towards contemporary art, she took her Masters Degree in Art & Space at Kingston University, London, with Distinction. She creates installations incorporating film and publications. A key technique in her films is to take hundreds of photographs, which are edited and sequenced into rapid ‘flicker films’ and combine them with composite soundtracks. Films may exist on their own, or may become part of installations that they are projected into. Bringing her background in design and art together, and along with artist Robert Good, she crowdfunded the publication of ‘A New Dictionary of Art’ – a conceptual book that attempts to tackle the question of what is art through 3,000 definitions of a single word. Jane Glennie’s films have been shown by PoetryFilm at the Hackney Picturehouse and Reykjavik, Iceland; in Art Language Location in Cambridge, England; and on Visual Container TV as part of the 29th Festival Les Instants Vidéo, La Friche La Belle De Mai, Marseille, France.
