Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau

Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau

East London

General Working Practice:
Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau is an artist, writer and musician living and working in London. His art work ranges from drawing, to video and performance. His performance work nestles in the gap between critical theory and everyday experience, drawing together anecdote and abstraction to create chaotic narratives.

The Sadness of Mark Speight

In April 2008, Mark Speight, presenter of children's TV art show Smart,hanged himself in Macmillan House next to Paddington station. Three months earlier his girlfriend Natasha Collins had died from severe burns and drug overdose.
