Spacex Forthcoming

The exhibition install is well under way at Spacex.  It is intriguing to see how the reconfigured relationships between the works unfold in another new gallery space.  We are all very excited about the opening at Spacex on Saturday 12th May 2012.

Louise K Wilson has been invited to produce a new work in parallel to the exhibition. This work, Missing Scenes
– An Evening at Hanging Rock

It will be presented at Exeter Phoenix on 5 July and consist of a screening of Weir’s original 1975 feature film with video and sound interventions by the artist.  For booking details and the trailer see here.
