‘Reading a wave’ brings together a selection of works that consider the physical nature of film. It looks at the way that artists have addressed film as a sculptural proposition; through a formal investigation of its intrinsic properties and as a material embodiment of gestures or actions. The exhibition highlights the moments of performance that are implied by the use of physical process to create the film itself, these are set in relation to pieces that use film and video as a way of sculpting and staging space. By weaving together contemporary work with a selection of more historical explorations of the technologies and techniques of film-making the show articulates an experimental, non-narrative engagement with the moving image that is continuously influential.

Exhibition includes works by Lis Rhodes, Tony Hill, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Torsten Lauschmann, LoVid, Anabel Nicolson, Laura Buckley, Haroon Mirza, Dave Maclean & George Barber.
