Solo Exhibitions

Ben Rivers: Slow Action
A new film in four parts, Slow Action exists somewhere between documentary, ethnographic study and fiction. The work has its online premiere at animateprojects.org, coinciding with its exhibition at Matt’s Gallery, London from 26 January. Commissioned by Picture This and Animate Projects, in association with Matt’s Gallery, London.

Hiraki Sawa: The Floor He Never Saw
A new work, exploring the mind and how it loses things, questioning ideas of identity and memory and the spaces between reality and fiction. The work has its online premiere at animateprojects.org in February, coinciding with its exhibition at the James Cohan Gallery, New York. An Animate Projects commission, supported by the James Cohan Gallery, New York and Shiseido Gallery, Japan.

Edwina Ashton
Inspired by the life and studies of 19th century naturalist and theologian Phillip Gosse, and the marine life he studied in Devon’s rock pools, Edwina Ashton has produced a new animated film. The film will be online from March, following its exhibition at the Phoenix Gallery, Exeter, along with the film Mr Panz, co-commissioned by Animate Projects and The Drawing Room in 2009. The work is commissioned by Phoenix Gallery and Animated Exeter in association with Animate Projects.

Julian Göthe: Nocturne
A work constructed around a sequence of camera movements through scenery of Göthe’s sculptures. The animated images are based on the artist’s drawings with a backdrop of dramatic cloud formations that appear like a fantastic cityscape. An Animate Projects commission, online at animateprojects.org from March.

Matt Stokes: Dance Swine Dance
The work depicts a character dancing through a cycle of moves that epitomise distinctive modern music and dance cultures. The tireless figure whilst immersed in an altered and focused state, outwardly displays the escapism and enjoyment in his actions. The work will premiere online in April. Commissioned by Gateshead Council and produced by Animate Projects.
