Click to enlargeIMAN ISSA : MATERIAL FOR 2018
Feb 17 - Apr 15, 2018
The work of Iman Issa explores the relationship between history, memory, language and objects. Working across sculpture, text, video, photography and sound, Issa questions the possibility of addressing the collective through individual experience. She is interested in how forms can carry personal and political significance, often making reference to places, figures or events that have a personal resonance.
 
For her exhibition at Spike Island, Issa presents Material (2010–12) a series of ‘displays’ that question the function of public sculpture and monuments. The series makes reference to existing public monuments which she strips back to their essential elements and reimagines into other forms, triggering a chain of associations that go beyond the original object and its meanings.
 
The exhibition is a collaboration with Bielefelder Kunstverien, Germany.

MAHBUB JOKHIO
Feb 9 - Apr 22, 2018
In The City of Lost Times is Pakistani artist Mahbub Jokhio’s first solo show in the UK. Fascinated with public spaces that have a very private dimension, Jokhio’s work has recently focussed on graveyards in Pakistan. Graveyards in Pakistan are frequently seen as spaces solely for the dead, and are not often visited beyond funerals and burials. However, Mahbub Jokhio suggests they should be places where both the living and the dead can co-exis.

Feb 9 - Apr 22, 2018

The central film, These Silences Are All the Words, 2017, focuses on the Bedil Library and how the librarians and the library’s users reflect on the city outside the library’s walls and the shift of language from Urdu to English. Aijaz works with photography, film and fiction, exploring how pleasure and entertainment are experienced in public spaces.

JOHN STEZAKER
Dec 1, 2017 - Jun 1, 2018
Using vintage photographs, old film stills, postcards and book illustrations, John Stezaker makes collages that subvert their original imagery, creating unique and compelling works of art. Collages from his Mask series will be shown, in which glamorous sitters’ faces are overlaid with scenic postcards featuring waterfalls bridges, seascapes; Untitled (Film Portrait Collages) in which photographs of B-movie actors are spliced together; and other works that combine and mirror photographs to subtly destabilise the image. This exhibition marks the gift from Karsten Schubert to the Whitworth of nineteen collages by John Stezaker, and a further three collages presented by the artist himself.
