People who have saved this event:



Almost Bliss commemorates the 20th anniversary of the death of artist, filmmaker, writer, and activist Derek Jarman. This blue-lit installation centres on a group of Jarman's hand painted and carefully written notebooks, giving a visual insight into the artist's creative thinking towards what was to become his seminal late film work, Blue. The exhibition makes reference to two earlier installations inspired by Jarman: one by Mark Wallinger in 1994 and another by Peter Fillingham with Keith Collins in 1999. The show will also include prints, books, a canister of cinefilm and other ephemera relating to Derek Jarman's Yves Klein-inspired monochrome movie.
