Upcoming Brighton Exhibitions
Still From: ‘I See An Infinite Distance Between One Point And Another’
One of the great benefits of living in Brighton is the wealth of its art community, so I thought I’d let you all know what’s going on in the next month in case you’re in the area (and if you are, drop me an email and I’ll show you around!)
Turtle Salon @ Grey Area
14th April - 29th April
Throughout Turtle Salon’s occupancy at the Artist Run Grey Area expect art, video art, film screenings and live music (including an appearance by The Raincoat’s Gina Birch). I’ll be at the PV on Saturday 14th April, for Amos Poe’s Empire II. This is a great, new and very exciting space for Brighton’s art scene, encouraging an open, social dialogue between a variety of artistic disciplines and their audience.
Lower Ground Floor, 31 Queens Road, Brighton, BN13XA, Entrance Up Side Street.
Costume @ HINTER
22nd April - 13th May
A presentation of sculpture by Lauren Schneider and Albert Schlemberger. Schneiders work in particular is particularly special, an intensely internal artist that explores the complexity of identity through bound and covered figures.
Unit 16, Unit 16, Lion Mews, Richardson Road, Hove, BN3 5RA.
‘I See An Infinite Distance Between One Point And Another’ @ Fabrica
14th April - 27th May
Fabrica sees the presentation of a new film essay by Turner Prize nominated The Otolith Group, in which Lebanese poet Etel Adnan is filmed reading excerpts of her book-long poem ‘Of Sea and Fog’, a beautifully lyrical and haunting work. I’ve already seen the work, and I’ll be writing about it later on this month, once I’ve spent a bit more time with it. The final cut of the film is my favourite, a gorgeous moment of fragmentation as the camera breaks up an ice sheet, creating new borders and islands.
40 Duke Street, Brighton, BN1 1AG
Lakeside Frequencies @ Westhill Community Hall
This new work by Rachael Melanson, a relatively new installation artist in Brighton, is something to get really involved with. From what I’ve heard, Melanson will be erecting a forest within Westhill, with each tree containing aa radio reciever. You are then given a headset, which picks up each frequency as you explore the piece. Exciting stuff.
