About

Artdocs was founded in 2010 by artist and filmmaker, Benjamin Wigley. The company's work spans platforms and audiences by exploring multilayered, immersive journeys through experimental film, documentary, art and interpretation.

Artdocs’ first independent film, P.S. Your Mystery Sender, played internationally (SXSW, HotDocs, Palm Springs). In 2012 Anna Griffin joined the company to produce their first feature length documentary, Paa Joe & The Lion (Sheffield Doc/Fest and SXSW, 2017).

The company works with Arts Council England and The National Trust and with these partners has recently completed an epic project that exhibited at Somerset House, entitled One and All - a truly experiential production merging physical exhibition, online interactive journey and celluloid film. Artdocs has also recently been selected as one of the top 50 companies for 2017 by Creative England.

Benjamin Wigley

I am an artist and filmmaker whose work explores the journeys we make in life. My projects are often realised in the space between art and documentary. I am currently interested in how we talk about our lives through the metaphors of the natural world, and in the connections we make between memory and place. I am developing work that allows the viewer to get a sense of both a physical and an experiential journey; interacting, immersing and participating. I am also interested in how many different ways, or forms, a person can experience an idea or a story: using performance, documentary & experimental film, sculpture, photography (prints and books), exhibition spaces, digital immersive experiences, through artist walks and interpretation, that all work together to build an augmented viewer experience.
