Working mainly in sculpture and video, Chinese artist Guan Xiao (b.1983) explores how ways of seeing are now influenced by digital image circulation as an increasingly dominant source of knowledge and information exchange. In various works and installations she endeavours to expand the aesthetic and cognitive possibilities for how identity and meaning are assigned and understood.

Jennet’s show at Grundy Art Gallery ( and book)

This summer I have to blow my own trumpet- I have a big new project called

THE UNSPEAKABLE FREEDOM DEVICE

that is manifesting as a Multimedia installation show experimental fiction film, and my first Book. Here is the info

THE UNSPEAKABLE FREEDOM DEVICE at GRUNDY ART GALLERY

link here: http://www.grundyartgallery.com/programme/

For summer 2015, the Grundy Art Gallery presents a new commission: THE UNSPEAKABLE FREEDOM DEVICE, an experimental narrative film and multimedia sculptural installation by artist Jennet Thomas.

The film presents a kind of absurd fairy-tale, in which a strange mythical tribe surrounding the ‘Blue Lady’, based on a memory of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, holds sway. The tribe takes a fictional pilgrimage through a future-primitive world, where the difference between magic and technology is now forgotten.

Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness

A finger poised on a camera – its open back revealing the film roll and mechanism – sets the scene for this exhibition of photographs about photography. Somewhere between a film director, a picture editor and an art historian, American artist Christopher Williams (b.1956) investigates photography as the defining medium of modernism.
