Riddle Me - Danielle Arnaud contemporary art

Went to see this exhibition today, attracted by the blurb:

‘Now we have machines to do our dreaming for us. But within that ‘video gadgetry’ might lie the source of a continuation, even a transformation, of storytelling and story performance. The human imagination is infinitely resilient…’ Angela Carter ,1990

The artists showing in this exhibition investigate different aspects of storytelling, fantasy, identity and the tragi-comic sensibility of materials. The work creates relationships between innocence and violence, light and darkness.

Particularly struck by video installation by Sophie Lascelles, and maps of the waking world by Oona Grimes.

Picked up the gallery's business card as I was interested in the image by Heather & Ivan Morison.
