About


Ailleurs Adverb (a) elsewhere, somewhere else.

Five artists, based in London and France, bring elsewhere here.

By means of sculptural intervention, drawing, film, video and spoken word performance, other real and imaginary spaces inhabit the gallery; taking us from haunted landscapes, lost springs and absent voices, to Las Vegas swimming pools and an East End sun.

Marcel Dinahet's video reveals the river's source, lost and found in the forests of Brittany. In Ron Haselden's light drawing, the rays of a rising East End sun pierce the gallery wall, its light beams illuminating the space and intervening with the work of the other artists within. In Lizzie Hughes' drawing all the swimming pools of Las Vegas city limits are relocated to the gallery wall, tracing a topography of sun worshippers in Google Earth. Old conflicts locked in the landscape materialise and then fade away again in Lucy Reynolds' slide piece, and those locked away find voice outside in Hugh Stoddart and Sarah Leipciger's readings of prisoners' poems and stories.
