The Imagining of Things An Installation by Brass Art and Alistair MacDonald

Please join us at 6pm-7.30pm on Thursday 17 October in Huddersfield Art Gallery for the launch of the next exhibition for ROTOЯ Transdisciplinary dialogue and debate.

Brass Art is Chara Lewis, Kristin Mojsiewicz and Anneké Pettican a collaborative trio based in Manchester, Glasgow and Huddersfield. Working together since 1999, they have exhibited in Berlin, New York, Washington and at Tatton Park Biennale, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Bloomberg Space, London and The Whitworth Gallery in Manchester. Brass Art merge an interest in nineteenth century optical devices with early twenty-first century body-scanning technologies such as Microsoft´s Kinect, a motion sensor often used in 3D gaming. This allows them to explore the magical slippages between time and space. The artists perform a series of spectral alter-egos; pixelated, ethereal beings that make brief cameos before dissolving back into the shadows from whence they came.

The Imagining of Things showcases Brass Art´s long-term research project Shadow Worlds | Writers’ Rooms where they explore their preoccupation with shadow play, mirroring and doubles. This rich and haunting body of photographic and video work was produced during nocturnal visits to the Brontë Parsonage Museum in 2011-12, with sound by the Glasgow-based composer Alistair MacDonald.

The Imagining of Things is part of Art in Yorkshire Goes Contemporary and Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. The exhibition opens at Huddersfield Art Gallery on Saturday 12 October until Saturday 21 December 2013.

Admission free. All welcome!
