Curated and produced by artist Tom McGinn, the exhibition examines the tensions and (dis-) continuities between video and sculpture, and the varying demands they make of their audiences.
Drawing comparisons to our daily, collective engagement with both the virtual and the physical, many of the works in the show foreground the material importance of the screen, as a device for communicating lived, bodily experience, and as a site for the sharing of knowledge via the ‘common’ language of images.
This exhibition is a continuation of Tom’s residency at pocagallery in Portugalete, Bilbao, during the summer 2014, supported by East Street Arts.
Tom McGinn will give an informal talk about his experience at pocagallery and discuss the new installation in the Project Space.
