LARISSA SANSOUR: IN THE FUTURE, THEY ATE FROM THE FINEST PORCELAIN
May 6 - Jun 24, 2017
In the Future They Ate From the Finest Porcelain resides in the cross-section between sci-fi, archaeology and politics. Combining live motion and CGI, the film explores the role of myth for history, fact and national identity. A narrative resistance group makes underground deposits of elaborate porcelain - suggested to belong to an entirely fictional civilisation. Their aim is to influence history and support future claims to their vanishing lands. Once unearthed, this tableware will prove the existence of this counterfeit people. By implementing a myth of its own, their work becomes a historical intervention - de facto creating a nation.

Jun 17, 2017 - Jan 8, 2018
This new display will explore Jane Austen’s relationship with coastal towns, and life in Brighton during her time, to mark the bicentenary of her death. It will look at the seaside context of Austen’s plots and paint a picture of the leading resort of Brighton in the early 1800s, when it was a fashionable ‘watering place’ featured in novels like Pride and Prejudice. Although there is no clear evidence that Austen visited Brighton she included it in several of her works, and the display will reassess her relationship with the town in the light of a long-term misunderstanding arising from a hand-written 1799 letter

Mar 4 - Jun 11, 2017
Over many years, Dan Hays has explored the relationship between the intangible and instantaneous realm of the digital image, and the tactile and time-consuming medium of painting. Using a variety of painting techniques, the pixelated nature of the screen image when seen close-up has been recreated and extended through layering, and is often exaggerated to the point of recognition.

May 6 - Jul 22, 2017
East GalleryNUA is delighted to exhibit work by the ground breaking German artist, Hans-Peter Feldmann.
Feldmann has exhibited in many major art venues worldwide, he was included in the Venice Biennale in 2009 and was awarded the prestigious Hugo Boss Art Prize in 2010.
Hans-Peter is well known for appropriating objects and making astute interventions that are often humorous, and frequently barbed. Copies of old master paintings are revised and don red noses or incongruous tan lines and versions of celebrated sculptures are luridly subverted - Michaelangelo’s David, for example.

Click to enlargeSEECUM CHEUNG : THE DUTCH WINDOW
May 5 - Jul 22, 2017
Seecum Cheung‘s work is based upon a series of interviews which seek to study the rise of right-wing Nationalism within Europe, featuring footage collected from Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Hungary, Denmark, Bulgaria and the UK. The next chapter of the work will be focussed on the national elections of The Netherlands (March 11th), France (April 23rd + May 7th) and Germany (September 24th) coined as the Super Election Year 2017.
 
The films seek to capture the conditions for those who are presently caught in between the lines of (in)visibility in light of the rising xenophobia and protectionism in Europe, to explore how macro politics can impact upon the micro-happenings of the everyday. A total of four films (or chapters) will be produced in the series, gathering opinions from those who feel unrepresented in contemporary society today on both sides of the spectrum, from immigrants to those who declare to represent the underclass.

THE DUTCH WINDOW : SEECUM CHEUNG
May 5 - Jul 22, 2017
Grand Union will host a single channel video installation, with a focus upon the national elections of The Netherlands, which took place on 15 March 2017.
 
Cheung has been conducting interviews since August 2015, collaborating with media representatives to collect footage from Germany, Belgium, Sweden, The Netherlands, Hungary, Denmark, Bulgaria and the UK, to map out the differing frames surrounding the rising surge of nationalism within Europe.

Through this research and personal involvement, his work becomes a platform from which to construct intimate and reflective portraits while unearthing unexpected moments of exchange between his subjects.
