BENEDICT DREW: THE ANTI ECSTATIC MACHINES
Sep 22 - 30, 2018
A song in digital video, painting and sound, Drew’s source material is a body of film he has shot in 16mm at sites around the south of England. 16mm film marks a new development in the artist’s practice, who has transferred the analogue footage into digital video for editing. Locations such as the port at Dover, the industrial greenhouses of Thanet Earth and new-build residential housing developments become material for a body of work whose backdrop is the social and political fall out of Tory austerity and the EU referendum. The 'Machines' of the title here stand in for forces at work in the socio-political climates we live in.

Jan 19 - 27, 2019
Private view Fri Jan 18 6pm - 9pm
In 2018 Grimes spent 8 months on a fellowship at The British School at Rome. As she worked, her thoughts kept returning to Italian Cinema - from the Neorealists to late Fellini. She took walks in the early morning to enjoy the city before the crowds; gradually the walks and the films got woven together in Grimes thoughts, dreams and work. Grimes began to make video recordings, not acting she says, but 'drawing the moment.'
