A life-size, live-action film reel will take shape in an East London gallery as part of an exhibition highlighting the talents of Middlesex University fine art students.
Restricted Space will showcase pieces by around 50 second year artists who have worked with a range of media and concepts to create visually-thrilling and unique artworks.
The film real, a live performance piece made up of lights and screens allowing the projection of live dancers freestyling to music, will be joined by more traditional photographs, paintings and sculptures – including a piece made from plastic bags burnt and fused together.
West Hampstead student curator and creative mind behind the film reel Luke Mapo said: ‘Exhibiting work in a real, working gallery gives us an incredible opportunity to showcase our art to an external audience.
It also gives us a chance to maximise our creativity while working with factors that can ultimately determine the final form of our pieces including space restrictions and health and safety considerations.’
The exhibition will open with a private viewing at cre.8 in Hackney Wick at 7pm on April 24 and runs until April 30.
