Parasol unit presents as the final exhibition in its current London space, works by French artist Christine Rebet. This, her first UK solo show, will occupy two floors of the gallery and comprise six hand-drawn animated films that address the traumas of personal and collective histories, illusion and the destruction of our shared history and environment.
Drawing is at the heart of Rebet’s practice, which she often develops into animated films, sculpture, installations or performance art. With a background in theatre design, Rebet presents her hand-drawn animations within immersive environments and sculptural props. Working with the traditional techniques of early animation she explores the unconscious and creates tales that are both anti-heroic and satirical.
Curated by Ziba Ardalan, Founder, Artistic and Executive Director of Parasol unit, the Christine Rebet exhibition is accompanied by a tailored programme of related educational events.
