Jamie Shovlin graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2003. His first exhibition was Naomi V. Jelish (2001-4), an archive of drawings attributed to the titular young girl that was infamously acquired by Charles Saatchi. Drawing has been central to his practice throughout his career.

Shovlin has explored the use of archives and structures that underpin ideas of subjectivity and history through a variety of forms, including Lustfaust: A Folk Anthology 1976-81 (2003-12), another large-scale project centred around a fictional archive of music memorabilia, and Hiker Meat (2009-14), a collection of material related to the imaginary film of the project’s title.

His work often features elements of autobiography and family history. For In Search of Lost Harmony, displayed at Tate Britain in 2006, Shovlin used his mother’s bird watching to examine histories of amateur and scientific classification. The project began an interest in the representation of the natural world that continues in his latest works.

Shovlin has previously exhibited at the ICA, Talbot Rice Gallery, Manchester Museum, MACRO, Rome, and most recently at Tremerheeren Gallery in Cornwall.
