AboutPicture This presents the exhibition Tony Sinden: early works as a starting point from which to appraise the practice of an artist who was key to developments in both artists' film, expanded cinema and critically site specific and large scale multimedia installations. The exhibition brings together works from the 1970s which have not been exhibited together before.
Tony Sinden is increasingly considered a prominent figure within the development of British moving image - producing a body of innovative work throughout his career until his premature death in 2009. Sinden's practice spanned four decades of substantial production, experiment and exhibition. He worked across a range of mediums: single screen 16mm, expanded 16mm, video, installation, slide and site related practices. His works reflect a sculptural use of video and questions of media, materials, time and space.
Picture This has a very special relationship with Tony Sinden, commissioning him to produce new works (Ancestral Voices 1993 and Dichotomy 2000) and working with him on his projects for almost fifteen years.
