WAVES, CONTROL ROOMS, UN-RESETTLING

Two wonderful exhibitions, Un-resettling James Tylor and  The Waves + Controls Rooms Chris Bennie, opened at Photoaccess last night and because it was Photoaccess we left the photography to Director Jan Falsone who has done a brilliant job … although that is scarcely surprising ! CCAS’s David Broker opened the exhibitions since he has known Chris for yonks, […]

She is very able to make an her political/environmental point without pretension or fanfare and this is her strength … concise comments about […]

FAMILIAR IMPURITIES

Llewellyn McGarry’s practice has been concerned with the way that human relationships define and shape one’s idea of her identity and this can sometimes mean a preoccupation with “others”, family, friends and colleagues for example. Chatting with Llewellyn last night she mentioned that this current exhibition is more about her, focussing on the body as a shell for […]
