Private View: 1st May 2015 | 6-10pm
Exhibition: 2nd May – 26th June
Block is pleased to announce IT IS AS IF, a new video installation work by Vong Phaophanit and Claire Oboussier.Vong Phaophanit was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1993 and the artist duo are best known for their architectural and site specific works that examine themes of identity and dislocation. Fully supported by the Wellcome Trust, IT IS AS IF extends these concerns to explore topographies of memory and deterritorialisation and their confluences with the landscape of the human body.
Featuring a film work from a specially performed operation by Professor Roger Kneebone alongside two new video works, the maze-like installation invites us to become lost within its network of passages and a discoverer of a new sense of place, time and meaning.
