JOHN STRUTTON ANNA LIES
Feb 24 - Mar 25, 2017
Over the past decade or so Strutton has started each day in the studio by making a small drawing on A4 paper. Like a stretch or limbering up exercise this activity was always meant to be an act of just doing something rather than producing anything. Each drawing was stamped, as a way of defacing or invalidating the image, with the words ANNA LIES. Over the years this habit has become an accidental archive of painting without the burden of it becoming visible. The short video work ANNA LIES compresses hundreds of theses images down to 1/30th of a second to form a constantly shifting visual frame over which a narrator throws accusations of deceit, contradiction and irresponsibility. For the duration of the exhibition a number of the original drawings will be shown as a large scale installation.
 
As part of this show Strutton will also be screening a number of recent videos, each under 5mins at the RCA Gorvy Lecture theatre on Monday 20th February at 6.30pm.
