AboutMaya Ramsay won The London Group Solo Show Award and her award show Wall Talk takes place at The Cello Factory from April 26th - May 4th. Maya will be showing work that uses her unique technique of lifting off the top layer of surfaces from historically and politically significant buildings and re-presenting them. The works in Wall Talk reference the idea of walls as witnesses and the use of walls as weapons.
The exhibition will include work from Maya's recent project Station X in which she lifted surfaces from the derelict buildings of Bletchley Park - as used by the Code-breakers during World War Two. Station X captures the histories imbued in the fabric of one of Britain's most important historical sites, before they were lost when the buildings were renovated.
The exhibition will include filmed documentation of the buildings by Luke Williams. Station X was first shown at MK Gallery project space (2012) & Alan Turing's hut at Bletchley Park (2012-13) and has featured in a number of BBC interviews.
