About

‘Burnt Wood Stories' Anthony Gross, Gallery 1 The Agency is pleased to present Burnt Wood Stories, a solo exhibition of mixed-media works by artist Anthony Gross. New and recent pieces in sound and video are presented via a number of 'Scenarios', styled workstations of equipment, which separate the moving image and its soundtrack. The Scenarios form installations interspersed by filmed and unfilmed scripts, still photos, translation documents and vintage props. Leaning on conceptual strategies from the 1970s and the visual style surfing of the current technological age, Anthony Gross presents an exhibition as enquiry, the search for a style as the style itself and establishes the gallery as a functional space where the audience becomes the unwitting participant and potential maker of the work.The exhibition is accompanied by a specially produced publication with texts and drawings by the artist, and with commissioned essays by Amanda Beech, David Burrows, and Rosie Cooper. ‘Rising Cities Float' Sovay Berriman, Gallery2 Within Rising Cities Float Berriman presents Batons (2010-ongoing) a series works constructed from copper and steel rods, insulation tape and shards of acrylic sheet. Berriman's practice is concerned with the dynamics of space in relation to power and imagination, considering heterotopias, stage and prop. Her body of work choreographs an overall experience, layering ideas through the production of objects, drawings, texts and events. The individual pieces, connected and resonant, reinforce and extend the space and ideas of each other, allowing Berriman's propositions to be observed both within a wider perspective and at close proximity.
