Still. Showcase Gallery. Southampton.Nov-Jan 2013

Still The Showcase Gallery at Southampton Solent 18th Nov - 11th January 2013. Curated by Dr John Gillett and Sara Roberts Group show with Jo Longhurst, Toby Glanville, Clare Strand, Gillian Wearing and Melanie Manchot.

The Arts Council Collection has kindly loaned two fascinating pieces; Clare Strand showcases a suspended body in space with no visible means of support. As if by magic she exposes the supernatural and unexpected, posing queries which are not necessarily answerable. The Arts Council Collection has also provided Gillian Wearing’s award-winning artwork which examines what it really takes to keep still, pushing the boundaries of decorum, poise and control.
