Chisenhale Gallery presents a new commission by Sidsel Meineche Hansen, exploring London as a ‘surveillance capitalist’ city.
Meineche Hansen’s work focuses on the industrial complex that connects virtual and robotic bodies to human labour within the pharmaceutical, pornographic and tech-industries. Her work combines computer generated imagery and virtual reality production with drawing, ceramics, photography, woodcut prints and sculpture.

26 Sep - 6 Dec, 2020
In autumn 2020 Chisenhale Gallery presents the first solo exhibition in a UK institution by Ho Chi Minh City-based artist Thao Nguyen Phan. Working with painting, installation, performance and film, Phan’s work explores social conventions, history and tradition through non-fiction and fictional narratives.
Phan’s new commission Becoming Alluvium, builds on her ongoing research into the Mekong River, which runs through Tibet, China, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Composed of two elements – a single channel film work and a series of lacquer and silk paintings – the works simultaneously explore real and imaginary worlds, weaving narratives concerning food security and ecological sustainability with myth, memory and ritual.
