CONROY & SANDERSON "Elsewhere"

14 May–28 June 2003

Neil Conroy and Lesley Sanderson make collaborative work that engages with an exploration of physical displacement.

This is used metaphorically to suggest an anxiety about how one is positioned within specific societies. Feelings of belonging or alienation are made visual by an emphasis on the physical relationship or dislocation that the subject might have with their surrounding, be that a domestic space or a landscape.

Elsewhere brings together several related works which explore these themes through different mediums. The exhibition includes an installation which uses drawing with moving light and intermittent sound; a series of colour photographs which are seen alongside drawings emphasising certain elements within the image; and a performative video of the artists. In these works the subjects are isolated, floating or out of context, which infers that their sense of belonging is 'elsewhere'.

Both acclaimed artists in their own right, Lesley Sanderson, a Chinese/Malaysian artist has been working in collaboration with British born artist Neil Conroy over the last five years. Previous exhibitions include East International, Norwich 2002, Leeds Metropolitan Gallery, Leeds 2002 with forthcoming exhibitions Cruel/Loving Bodies touring X-Ray Art Center, Beijing and Para/Site, Hong Kong.
