Exhibition: Still

At Transition Gallery and Hackney Picturehouse Gallery

Andrew Bracey / Jackie Chettur / Paul Kindersley / Cathy Lomax / Alli Sharma / Mimei Thompson / David Wojtowycz / Nicola Woodham

Private View: Thursday 6 September, 7.00

The moving magic of film lies in its flickering frame-by-frame approximation of life. The stilling of that movement redirects the viewer’s gaze towards an entirely new reality. Context and meaning are rearranged and new beauties unearthed behind the seemingly banal. In halting, repeating or reconstructing, the image persists, becoming a thing in itself which, as film theorist Laura Mulvey notes, "has its own visual pleasures and rewards that do not replace, but complement those of watching a film".

Each of the artists exhibiting in Still is in their own way engaged in this cinematic alteration.
