Details

Lindsay Seers

Her projects weave storytelling with historical research and biography. Lindsey Seers enlists film, photography, sculpture and writing in a search for truths that remain tantalisingly ungraspable. She follows a trail of uncanny coincidences, ambiguous allusions and hidden signs. 

Nowhere Less Now (iam nowhere)

Video.. Seers reconstructs the hull of HMS London, a decommissioned warship involved in an anti-slavery mission in Zanzibar. In a form of double-vision, the films are projected on twin screens, while the sound is heard through headphones, relaying the stroy in your head. It's a mexed media installation, two-channel HD video projection with stereo sound on headphones.

My Thoughts...

I really enjoyed the idea of listening to the video on your own through headphones, plugging in your headphones to actually become part of the piece. Listening to the video on your own is more personal - like someone is individually talking to you, I also enjoyed the idea of having two screens - you have a freedom of choice of which one to look at. The films itself were hard to understand, but was very intriguing and you really had to listen. Seers would seem like a ghost/echo through the haunting ways she repeats her words and appears haunted through her tone of voice.

Anne Hardy

Anne Hardy presents two bodies of work which mark a departure from the artist’s usual practice. Known for constructing imaginary spaces and presenting these set-like installations in the form of large scale photographs; the artist exhibits Two Joined Fields (2013), a work which, for the first time, allows viewers to physically enter her sculptural installations. Hardy will also display large scale photographs on all three of the Hayward Gallery terraces – wrapping the building in an array of other realities.

Emma Mcnally

Her work are drawings that suggest maps or charts of things as complex and various as seas, the night sky and flight paths. McNally's drawings join with both the virtual and real worlds, they come from the imagination.

John Stezaker

As always being a fan of Stezaker after I had discovered him at college, I was thrilled to see his work featured at this exhibition.

John Stezaker’s work combines and reveals different layers of reality using found imagery. Working in collage since the 1970s, Stezaker has been a forerunner in giving old images a new context and his analogue work is more relevant than ever to a younger digital generation. Stezaker will show a selection of silk screens and collages, many of which will be new for MIRRORCITY.

He describes his collages as being 'Like dreams that you can never quite remember' he moves images from one world into another. I've always found this selection of work by Stezaker to be his most prominent and best work. Due to the strange idea of the pieces - cutting up one image to be a part of another.

My views on the Exhibition

I thought that this exhibition really does raise the question - 'What is our current experience of reality?', and gives us different answers. What is reality to you? Could reality be in the sense of Anne Hardy's made up worlds? Could Tai Shani's dreamlike, cinematic installations take us to a different reality, between historical fact, myth or science fiction? I really enjoyed going around this exhibition and exploring different views on reality and living in the digital age today. I think these collection of works did explore different answers and opinions of what is reality in terms of art.
