Gary Stevens: Now and Again
Now and Again – Gary Steven’s largest solo show to date – sees new works displayed alongside retrospective and seminal video pieces.
The exhibition will include two new works Containment and Now and Again: Westgate,
Southampton alongside his acclaimed video installations Slow Life and Wake Up & Hide.
Making reference to landscape, still life and portraiture painting the new works explore complex representations of time, presence and absence. Peopled by local inhabitants,
Now and Again: Westgate, Southampton has been filmed from four different perspectives at the Westgate in Southampton’s Old Town, and will reveal an understated, uncanny aspect to everyday activity with an emerging sense of synchronicity.
The additional work, Containment has a sculptural quality to it where images intermingle on clusters of video monitors in the gallery.
Stevens is a British artist who has developed an inter-related body of work that spans performances and video installations since 1984.
