An exhibition by Ellie Harrison


This exhibition at Watermans is Ellie Harrison's first solo show at a gallery in London. It features 'A Brief History of Privatisation' - a major new installation in which the oscillations in public service policy over the last century are re-enacted by an inner circle of electric massage chairs under the seedy glow of red, and then blue, neon. This will be shown alongside two older works, 'Vending Machine' and 'Toytown', developed in 2009 in response to the global financial crises.
