BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

Since its birth\, cinema has made a paradoxical demand on its viewers: t o consciously suspend their disbelief. This remains a preoccupation for con temporary artists who have grown up exposed to an intense flow of still and moving images. The film and video works in this exhibition focus on the te nsion between image\, narrative and the viewer’s perception. Together they expose the fracture between what we are shown on screen and what we see. Bo rrowing from various cinematic conventions\, as well as formats including l ecture\, documentary\, rehearsal and found footage\, they examine the limit s of our imagination and credulity. With a variety of approaches\, their re ferences move between the black boxes of movie theatres and the ‘black mirr ors’ of our TV screens\, computers and smart phones.

\n

The exhibition blur s the boundary between depiction and deception and questions the logic of s torytelling. Does the illusive charm of the moving image undermine its auth ority as a visual record? And what role does the viewer’s imagination play in constructing a narrative?
