As one of the most prominent artists of his generation, Ed Atkins’ work often takes the form of High Definition video and text, subverting the conventions of both literature and moving images, as is the case with his recent and multi-screen video project, Ribbons, which will celebrate its UK premiere at at the gallery.
As the gallery adapts to suit the sub-horror atmosphere of Ribbons, its walls will become submerged in syncopated sounds, bodies, and spaces that explore the ambivalent relationships between reality and its virtual form.
There will also be an introduction to the exhibition, led by curator Lucia Pietroiusti, on June 21.
