Jamie Man 文珮玲 (London, 1987) is an artist whose work as a composer is primarily concerned with music and the poetic mystery of what we are. Masochism, the violence of the voyeuristic gaze and art as presence rather than representation, form the foundation of her work in which seeing and hearing are directed towards everyday phenomena which usually exist on the peripheries of our focus and the limits of human perceptibility.
Outrenoir I, II and III are a series of dark-room installation-performance works commissioned by Ensemble Xenon (2018), London Symphony Orchestra Soundhub (2019) and San Francisco Symphony Soundbox (2022). Large-scale performance works include PLAY: Episodes in Subspace (Gulbenkian Music Foundation Lisbon, 2016), Filth and Ecstasy (Ballet de l'opera du Rhin, 2021), ZELLE: Wenn es Dunkel Wird (LOD Muziektheater, 2021) and Connaissez-vous le cri du Chocard? (l’Orchestre de Chambre de Paris and Théatre du Châtelet, Paris) commissioned in 2020 supported by the Franco-British fund Diaphonique.
Jamie is a member of Sonotomia.
