To inspire us through the last days of winter Lit brings together the works of three individual artists who each use light to explore ideas of identity and place.
Lulu Quinn: Flood Light
A new video work, commissioned by the gallery. This piece plays with the perception of an empty gallery space but also draws on the history of the location and the flood risk reality of the site. Surging images of water shot on the River Ouse provide a moving flow of contrasting light and colour illuminating the space with liquid light.
Trisha McCrae: Forgotten Girlhood
McCrae's film piece explores memory and religion through a beautifully crafted five minute film. Through her focus on music and lighting McCrae lures the viewer into an intimate physical and perceptual world. A Cambridge Film Consortium project with support from, Kettle's Yard and Anglia Ruskin University .
Rachel Lovesey: Secondhand Shirts II
Working with textiles, the Ely-based artist is interested in how her fabric pieces occupy the space in which they hang. Light, shadow and sound is cast through the fabric, exerting the work's body into the empty space beyond it.
