ESTHER TEICHMANN & MONSTER CHETWYND : PHANTASIE FOTOSTUDIO II
Feb 16, 2019 -
'Phantasie Fotostudio II' is the most recent work made as part of the ongoing collaboration between artists Esther Teichmann and Monster Chetwynd. Since having first met at the Royal College of Art during their MA studies in 2004, the pair have been struck by the parallels in reference materials that their very distinct practices draw upon. Their practices also overlap in their adoption of tableaux vivantes and their use of theatrical backdrops and sets. Thus begun a dialogue and close friendship that has taken the form of making a joint body of work once a decade.

ANYA LEWIN : FEZ: THE ROYAL SCENT
Feb 16 - Apr 20, 2019
'Fez: The Royal Scent' is inspired by Anya Lewin's family photographs and public archives. Combining archival research, with fictional recreations, Lewin's film opens up questions about historical, narrative and place. 'Fez: The Royal Scent' will join 'With Heartfelt Gratitude for the Painless Treatment' (2008) and 'Chez Paulette on the Sunset Strip' (2013) to complete Anya Lewin's trilogy of moving image installations, shown here together for first time.

Feb 16 - Apr 27, 2019
'The Shepherd's Whistle' comprises the discovery of strategic cities in the UK, created during the Cold War by Soviet Intelligence. Artist Stefan Gec travelled sections of these routes on a reconditioned M-72 Soviet army motorcycle and sidecar from 1972.
The exhibition includes documentary footage of this journey, and the work calls upon current issues around identity and migration.

ANYA LEWIN: MORE THAN STORIES: A FILM TRILOGY
Feb 16 - May 4, 2019
More than Stories is a trilogy of films inspired by Anya Lewin’s family photographs and stories, and their interconnections with screen history and public archives. Each film has at its heart the haunted memories of Jewish life embedded in a particular story passed down to Lewin by her father.
