Forty video screens in custom built frames, each containing a series of video loops, are arranged in the gallery as a three dimensional collage. Shot over three days in Brazil and Argentina, the work continues the artist’s interrogation of time, memory and perception.

As the different details of Iguazu overlap and interrupt each other – close ups of birds darting in and out of the spray, mid shots of tourists walking along well trodden paths, wide shots of an expansive sky – we derive an overall scape, but the the temporal and spatial interruption between each screen prompts the viewer to fill in the gaps, drawing their own attention to their experience of the installation and the memories it may conjure. Just like the physical world, there is no beginning or end point. Perhaps it’s this that in the real world drives us to capture a moment for later.

Openign hours 2 – 6 Wednesday – Saturday
