Debut solo show for female art gang at London Pump House

By Culture24 Staff | 09 February 2009

Exhibition: Henry VIII’s Wives, Pump House Gallery, London, until December 15 2009

Henry VIII’s Wives are a group of female artists who met at Art College in Glasgow in the 1990s.

These days the subversive gang are based all over the world, and their recent collaborations include a campaign to build a 400-metre high tower.

Time-based installations are on the cards at the Pump House, their first exhibition in a London gallery. The Returning Officer takes stories shot in a house in Serbia, workshop in Lithuania and poppy field in Austria to delve into various hidden social and political histories.

The exotic locations are “visually seductive” apparently, accompanying the films with a live soundtrack from a church organ installed in the gallery.
