Artist Profile: Giles Ripley

Giles Ripley

Permanent Working Location:

General Working Practice:
“Giles Ripley is a cunning young artist-filmmaker making short, potent films satirizing aspects of human motivation and a growing trend for neurosis about achievement and self-actualizing. His films are funny, disarming and immediately likeable but also connect us to deeper and more uncomfortable emotions – fear of looking stupid and fear of wasting our life by not living up to potential. Ripley has been curated into international exhibitions, picked up by a number of savvy collectors and included in the likes of Kay Saatchi’s top picks.”

Mill24 Exhibition:
An unlikely take on a motivational seminar, “I’M A WINNER!!!! (Why aren’t you?)” follows its creator Giles Ripley’s journey on the road to success, delivering his simple secrets to a better life. Comprised of three video chapters, each lasting approximately three minutes, this quick fix formula offers an alternative to average, a chance to make a change and the key to creating amazing in your life.

Mill24 Exhibition Date:
