Punctum - The Gallery in Redchurch Street
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
Punctum, an exhibition described as an explosion of fresh ideas on moving image art, runs from November 27 to December 16, 2007, at The Gallery in Redchurch Street.
Curated by The Video Art Gallery, Punctum shows video art works inspired by traditional art forms side-by-side with works on canvas and paper that have taken video art as their starting point.
The artists include celebrated video and digital artist, academic and author, Chris Meigh Andrews; French artist Laurent Pernot who has recently exhibited in Barcelona (Joan Miro Foundation), Finland (Alva Aalto Museum) and Japan (Creative Centre, Sapporo); Silvia Battista who was shortlisted for the 2007 Celeste Art Prize and who has recently shown in the 700i Experimental Film Festival in Iceland; Jonathan Moss whose recent screenings include the International Short Film Festival in Oberhausen Germany, and the Izolenta International Digital Film Festival, Russia; and Royal College of Art MA graduate, John Bland.
