Guy Sherwin: Light Cycles
13 February - 27 February 2016
Private View: 12 February 2016, 6-8 pm
Christine Park Gallery is honoured to present a special exhibition of 16mm film installations by London-based filmmaker, Guy Sherwin. Lasting two weeks only, this will be Sherwin’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. During the exhibition, the gallery will be transformed into a semi-darkened space where the visitor is invited to walk freely around the installations.
on Light Cycles
Seven 16mm film installations, each almost a still-life concentrated on a single object or quality of light. Light projects onto physical surfaces, a drawing, a mirror, a suspended paper screen. Several of the works originated within Short Film Series (1975-ongoing), an interconnected set of three- minute films, and have since been adapted in unique ways for looped presentation in the space of the gallery.
The exhibition extends ideas from Film in Space, an exhibition I curated for Camden Arts Centre (2012/3) in which UK works of 16mm expanded cinema, originally made for performance, were re-worked for the gallery.
Thanks to Lynn Loo for her support and to David Leister for looper equipment.
