Autumn Exhibitions Launch


9 Nov 2023  


Join us for the launch of our new exhibition: asweetsea by Liza Sylvestre and John by Thomas Abercromby on Thursday 9 November, 6-8pm.

Both centred around moving image works, the two exhibitions explore diverse themes encompassing language, access, family, social mobility, memory and communication.

asweetsea explores what it means to communicate. As an artist who is deaf, and whose child and partner are both hearing, Liza Sylvestre seeks to locate where her disability lives within their family structure. Sylvestre has collaborated with her 6 year-old child to reimagine her fond memories of the 1985 TV show 'Sweet Sea'.

John explores the intricate ties between family, grief and the multifaceted layers of social class. The exhibition is centred around a film installation that juxtaposes childhood paintings made by Abercromby's late father with opulent gallery interiors, painterly images of urban landscapes, and behind-the-scenes moments of the film's all-working-class cast and crew.

Refreshments will be served from our Play Shelter outdoors, so please dress for the weather. Access information about our site can be found here.
