Picture This presents the exhibition Tony Sinden: early works as a starting point from which to appraise the practice of an artist who was key to developments in both artists’ film, expanded cinema and – critically – site specific and large scale multimedia installations.
03 July – 07 August 2010
Thursday – Saturday, 12-5.30pm
Tony Sinden is increasingly considered a prominent figure within the development of British moving image – producing a body of innovative work throughout his career until his premature death in 2009. Sinden’s practice spanned four decades of substantial production, experiment and exhibition. He worked across a range of mediums: single screen 16mm, expanded 16mm, video, installation, slide and site related practices. His works reflect a sculptural use of video and questions of media, materials, time and space.
Picture This has a very special relationship with Tony Sinden, commissioning him to produce new works (Ancestral Voices 1993 and Dichotomy 2000) and working with him on his projects for almost fifteen years.
