Wysing Arts Centre will officially launch the centre's year of The Improbable with a solo exhibition by London based artist Mark Aerial Waller. Waller is a film-maker, sculptor, installation artist and occasional writer and editor. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of cinema and brings cinematic references into the gallery through his immersive installations, screenings, events and elaborate films; in which action has been improvised by the cast in fantastical settings, such as a foam cave or a half completed housing development in Dakar. Science fiction meets Greek mythology in some of the most compelling ' and improbable ' artworks imaginable.
