About

The first UK show of the Paris born artist-filmmaker Pablo Pijnappel, premiering 4 major works: 1921-1977, 1979-, 2002; Andrew Reid, 2003; Walderedo, 2006; The Dog in the Park, 2007

Pablo Pijnappel's work revolves around memory, the short-lived projection of the past into the present through the use of personal archives and found imagery.

Three films focus on the history of a single character from the artist's own extended family. His haunting stories of rootless voyagers in search of their dreams take us across continents and back and forth in time, providing gripping tales of intrigue and adventure. Yet the works add up to more than an investigation into Pijnappel's complex origins; they reflect more broadly on the nature of relationships, on the gaps between reality and aspiration, and the stories that we tell about who we are and where we come from. Combining footage shot by the artist, home movies and images appropriated from mainstream cinema, his works also offer a meditation on memory, cultural identity and the moving image.
