White Knight

19 February – 3 April 2011


Alex Gross, Anna Mields & Emily Wardill

White Knight was a group show bringing together a new commission from Glasgow/Berlin based collaborating artists Alex Gross and Anna Mields and an existing film work by Emily Wardill. Alex Gross and Anna Mields developed a new film work Farbenlehre and created an installation using architectural forms to interrupt the space of the galleries. Fulll Firearms Workshops by Emily Wardill showed footage developing the script for a feature film to be finished in December 2011. Supported by The Showroom Gallery, London - the workshops involve actors and non-actors working from a script in development, based around the Sarah Winchester story.

The concept for the group show was to challenge the notion of white cube gallery space as an empty canvas by using it as a specific context to act upon rather than context free architecture.
