Solo show of recent work by Sigune Hamann at:
The Barn Gallery, Kendrew Quad, St John’s College,
St Giles, Oxford OX1 3JP, 12-6pm daily.
Sigune Hamann’s work tests our attention and perception. Much of Did You Spot The Gorilla? - including the film-strip with the same title - was developed during her residency in the Department of Experimental Psychology in response to the work of neuroscientist Kia Nobre. Artist and scientist share a curiosity in how our memories and expectations shape what we see.
In the show, images are split then re-assembled into new interchanging narratives: an installation of photographic figure-like cylinders; an immersive 30 metre panoramic film-strip from the demonstration last autumn for a second referendum; Freshers, a series of 100 photographs of first meetings and social interaction; Fair’s Fair, artist’s books that explore, like the cylinders, looking, meeting and dealing at Frieze Art Fair.
Sigune Hamann is an artist living and practicing in London since 1990. She is Reader in Art and Media Practice at the University of the Arts, Camberwell College of Arts. www.sigune.co.uk
