Helen Kirwan: perpetuum mobile

29 October – 5 December 2020
The Gallery will be reopening on Wednesday 2 December
Gallery 3: Cinema Space

perpetuum mobile shows live performances by the artist filmed  in the cedar forests of Lebanon and the Ustyurt plateau and Aral Sea regions of Uzbekistan. These, synthesised with performances under water and other imagery, form a complex montage with a fragmented but interwoven, repetitive structure.
