Gemma Syme

Gemma Syme works in video, performance and music. She is a member of FANTASING, a band/performance group with Bek Coogan, Sarah Jane Parton and Claire Harris.

"Gemma Syme holds a cheeky attitude towards ideas of gender and sexuality. She addresses issues of gender without holding onto lingering binarisms, and begins to blur lines of conventional sex differences. Her works plays along the fine line between objectification and empowerment, but doesn't present any sort of closure on these issues." - Abby Cunnane
