In A New Light, 2018 Video Painting series has been specifically curated for the HowTheLightGetsIn LONDON Festival 2018.


In A New Light features a video painting series commissioned exclusively for HowTheLightGetsIn – London 2018 . Exhibited in the Art & Cinema tent from 9am to 5pm each day of the festival with a talk ‘Finding the New in the Known’ by Sanchita Islam, one of the exhibiting artists, at 6pm on the Saturday evening.


‘In a New Light’ features work by international artists from Gabrielle Le Bayon of France to Sanchita Islam of Kula Lumpur as well as many UK based artists who have used the medium of video painting to create this series of explorative images. Each individually titled video painting is at the same time both an autonomous piece and part of the longer series. The series morph and shift just as each video painting reflects the shifting state our world finds itself in today. The series does not loop, but plays out in an order determined by the artists and which while gradually evolving, realises a coherent integrity. To fully appreciate this, the work is ideally viewed over a period of weeks and months; however the installation on view will make it possible to drop in on the work over the course of the weekend to approximate to a fuller experience. Over time the seeming simplicity of the subject matter is replaced by the uncovery of its unlimited potential.


We look forward to seeing you there!
