Jowonder   Founder



Joanna Woodward, known as profesionaly as Jowonder, is a multi-disciplined artist and writer, she tells made up stories about things that are, and aren’t real; seeing most things as magical including science.

Currently focusing on painting and writing using an improvisational approach which reflects a similar process used to make her stop-frame animated films; eg. collages which build into narrative and discovery

She was selected twice for The New Contemporaries exhibition, to which she was also prize winner. Has exhibited at Wellcome Collection (London), and world wide. Her avant-garde animated films have been screened on television and internationally; winning the Grand Prize at Zagreb International Festival of Animated Film, The Time Out Film Award, and Best Debute Film at the British Film Awards; they're noted by mythographer Marina Warner, are a part of the BFI Collection and included in The World History Of Animation.

'Animation, like a mural or piece of street art was something which could bypass the elitism of a mainstream gallery and yet still provide challenging messages outside of the main strean. When my first animated films were shown on television I was thrilled, it felt like the last frontier; we didn't have the internet in those days.

I believe that the spirit of playfulness is the most important element in any discovery, when we are playful our egos, and maybe even space-time gets out of the way.

My animated films created via stop frame animation, are made large scale or so small that they require a magnifier to animate. They are inhabited by protagonists constantly on the verge of a self-revelation, whose revelations are provided by the fragile materials from which they are made. These protagonists, coming from nothing and being insubstantial, create a sense of suspense, the only way for them to keep going is to welcome the changing spectres into which they travel and to embrace them as a part of a new self.

Today, when confronted by science; (I think), this must be the place of enchantment which I seek.'

In 2007, I embarked on the '6 Days Goodbye Poems Of Ophelia' project. The project is a living painting in bacteria, a re-telling of the story of Ophelia's death depicted in John Everett Millais' oil painting; seeing her death as a form of beautiful transformation a return to the land. The work uses the movement of live bacteria for animation and was created in a sterile laboratory,(commissioned by The Wellcome Trust, science by Dr Simon Park), the poetic soundtracks to the animations are created by the public and some of the international poetry soundscapes are currently still in process.

Flatlanders (2007), an animated video installation premiered in Guildford Cathedral alongside a debate which included, herself and physicists Dr Brian Cox and Dr Jim al Khalili, 'Is Science The New Religion?' The work referenced the ancient Greek character of Themis, in connection with the launch of the epic experiment at CERN, incorporating sound taken from the The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.(thanks to Milton Mermikides for sounds).

Jowonder And The Psychic Tea Leaves, is an audience interactive performance in the manner of a mock Victorian Séance; using humor as a central device, incorporating improvisation. A chosen member of the audience drinks a cup of tea -and the process unravels. Some venues have been: St John on Bethnal Green, Cabaret Futura, Courtyard Theatre and End Of The Pier Show, live music chronologically by: Billy Smith, Jowe Head, Ansuman Biswas and Andrew Hedges

My animations, which are a part of the BFI and the Lux Collections can be seen by arrangement in their original format, or on the 1st Website link above to My Youtube Channel.
