Chisenhale Gallery presents 'the destructors', a film commission and solo exhibition by London-based artist Imran Perretta.
'the destructors' is shot on location in Tower Hamlets, east London. Reflecting on Perretta’s experience as a young man of Bangladeshi heritage, the work reconsiders the figure of alienated male youth to explore the complexities of ‘coming of age’ for young Muslim men living in the UK.

Summer 2020
In light of increasing concerns relating to COVID-19, and in order to protect our staff, artists and visitors, Chisenhale Gallery is now temporarily closed to the public and the Chisenhale team are working remotely until further notice. Working hours are 10am – 6pm, Monday to Friday.
While the building is closed, we will be developing our work on our digital channels. For information on our recent exhibition by Imran Perretta, including an interview with the artist, please click here. Also available on the Watch, Read, Listen section of our website is a growing archive of recorded talks and events, Chisenhale Interviews with other artists and reading lists from past exhibitions.
We will continue to monitor the situation based on information from health officials. If you live in our local area, please visit the Roman Road Trust Facebook page for information on how to support each other during this time:

Chisenhale Gallery presents Becoming Alluvium, the first solo exhibition in a UK institution by Ho Chi Minh City-based artist Thao Nguyen Phan. Working with painting, installation and moving image, Phan’s work explores history and tradition through non-fiction and fictional narratives.
Becoming Alluvium continues Phan’s ongoing research about 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.
