PzM: GINA SOCRATES - NOVEMBER 1 - 23
Photography exhibition based on the Jersey sea wall
Built by the Nazis during the Second World War, the sea wall was constructed to ward off a British attempt to recapture the Island. Prisoners of war were drafted to work on the construction of what the Nazis called "anti-tank walls"; Panzermauren in German, abbreviated to PzM in their files. With time, the sea wall has become incorporated into the Island's identity, emerging as a seemingly organic extension of the coastal landscape.
Te Ahi Kā - Book launch by MARTIN TOFT - NOVEMBER 22, 5.30 - 7pm
Te Ahi Kā - The Fires of Occupation by photographer Martin Toft. All editions of the book, including Trade, Special and Collector's Editions will be available for purchase. In addition, a set of 6 Limited Edition prints and futhre framed images, including an unpublished triptych from the project will be on sale too. The launch will include a Māori blessing and a reading from the book and it will be held in a festive spirit with Danish gluhwein.
CHRISTMAS EXHIBITION WITH ANNA GILLESPIE AND KATY BROWN - NOVEMBER / DECEMBER 30 Nov - New Year
Anna Gillespie's exciting new sculptural collection of figures in plaster and bronze is a bold departure from her previous work. This year's show is a harder edge experience, expressed in a riskier, rawer form, marking a preference for experimentation and frankness.
Katy Brown's oils of the Jersey and Cornish coast capture fleeting moments that are both contemplative and compelling. Katy describes the act of painting as 'a process of distillation that occurs through the conscious and unconscious mind and senses, absorbing visual information and allowing the idea to pour onto the canvas.'
GALLERY TALKE WITH ANNA GILLESPIE - 30 November 12.30 - 1.30
