Maia Conran: Here is the Yard
- 29 March — 10 May 2014 *on now
Grand Union is proud to introduce Here is the Yard, a solo exhibition of new work by emerging artist Maia Conran. The exhibition presents three works that transform short video recordings of brief moments filmed, or found by the artist, into a large scale panorama, a sculptural sound installation and a discrete video work.
Conran’s artistic practice moves between old and new media, from film to computer animation and from video to sculpture or performance. She has a fascination with the stage and screen, and these thresholds can be seen as a motif throughout her work.
A new publication featuring contributions by Steven Ball (artist and research fellow at Central St. Martins, London) and Gil Leung (writer, artist, curator and Head of Programming, LUX, London), will be available from Grand Union in April.
