Maze, 2010 ... The film installation, Maze, casts the artist as Edmund, an Elizabethan courtier trying to reach his lover - Constance, played by the actress Keira Knightley. Split across two screens that cannot be watched simultaneously, the viewer must choose which character to follow: Romantic artist or fickle muse? Earnest male or inconstant female? Visual artist or Hollywood actress?
A programme of dramatic international artist moving image works, receiving their first presentations in the North East, at the historic Stephenson Works, Newcastle upon Tyne.
The selected exhibitions, by Stuart Pearson Wright, Henry Coombes and Lu Chunsheng, imaginatively explore histories, playing with reality and fiction to create narratives, which resonate on a personal and universal level.
The selected works represent visual storytelling at its most beautiful, strange and beguiling.
Wrap up warm and join us for the opening of each work on Saturday evenings, supported by Wylam Brewery.
All screenings are FREE and warm drinks will be available alongside a selection of publications and printed matter. Other parts of the historic building will also be open and accessible to the public, making this an opportunity to see this incredible heritage site in a uniquely atmospheric light.See more
