Would you like to come back to our hut, Backlit group show

Uncategorized July 20, 2017

BACKLIT presents its annual group show, which views the gallery as a former set for Auf Wiedersehen Pet, a comedy-drama television programme about a group of British migrant construction workers.
The exhibition features video, sculpture and performance that will take the viewer on a journey around the building as it is re-imagined as a fictitious location for ‘Ally Fraser’s Hideout’, a place for unlawful business in the hit 80’s series.
The works will explore notions of architectural space, transposed narratives, phantasma, and correlations with the current socio-political climate.

Featuring work by Jade Annaw, Ellen Brady, Connor Brazier, Matthew Chesney, Joey Holder, Daniel Rapley, Martin Rayment, Mo Scott, and Suzanne van der Lingen.
