Sally Waterman: In the Cage
03 Feb 2018 - 07 May 2018
10am-2pm Mon-Thu, 11:30am-3:30pm Fri & Sat
Sally Waterman’s interdisciplinary arts practice and research is concerned with the interpretation of literature into an elusive form of self-portraiture. She creates poetic still and moving image works that explore memory, place and familial relationships, drawing upon writers such as Henry James, Sylvia Plath and Virginia Woolf. T.S Eliot’s 1922 poem, ‘The Waste Land’ was used as a framework to examine her self-representational strategies and adaptation methods for her practice-based PhD, which culminated in a series of photographic and video installations (2005-2010).
'In the Cage' video (2007) will be shown in this solo exhibition alongside photographs from the 'Sermon' series (2008-2009), in association with the Journeys with 'The Waste Land' group show at Turner Contemporary.
