Gillian Wearing began Your Views in 2013 with an open call for videos of views from windows around the world. Over the past two months, Wearing has reprised the idea, this time creating a film of views amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In collaboration with Regen Projects, Your Views during the pandemic captures an unprecedented moment in modern history of worldwide isolation — from the UK, India, the United States, Greece, Italy, China, Nigeria, Morocco, Pakistan, the Philippines, and beyond. Now, as the world begins to reopen, Wearing’s project provides an opportunity to reflect on recent history and begin to unpack it through a humanistic lens.
The project is ongoing, and accepting contributions online at yourviewsfilm.com.
