People who have saved this event:


Bolton born Hetain Patel uses humour and the languages of popular culture and explores fantasy through a domestic lens.


This new exhibition by Hetain Patel includes two film works: The Jump (2015) and a major new commission, Don’t Look At The Finger (2017), commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella with Manchester Art Gallery and QUAD. These works continue the artist’s recent fascination with staging archetypal Hollywood action scenes within domestic settings, employing the characteristic humour in all Patel’s work. Don’t Look At The Finger presents a wedding ceremony where bodies speak physically, where the protagonists seek human connection through ritual combat and signed languages. The Jump features Patel’s homemade replica Spider-Man costume and connects the widely recognised fantasy of action and superhero films with the domestic setting of his British Indian family home in Bolton, in the UK.
