Tyburn Gallery is pleased to present Business As Usual, a solo exhibition by Alberta Whittle.


A multi-faceted artist whose practice includes film, performance, and various forms of collage and assemblage, Whittle is known for work which uses the body as a site of potential for transformation and resistance. Creating space to acknowledge the effects of history on the present, she envisions new models for the future, drawing on science fiction, decolonial knowledge, and the power of vulnerability.

For this exhibition, the artist has conceived a series of large-scale digital collages which bring together elements of photography and painting, using performative self-portraiture to depict re-imagined histories and radical futures. She uses collage to reveal the mutability of narratives and encourage multiple ways of knowing. Accommodating various perspectives, images and texts, this practice allows her to disturb the constructed notion of a singular, objective history, and shed light on a wealth of stories and experiences which have been overlooked. These images show manifold alternative possibilities, overflowing in rich kaleidoscopic symmetry.
