New works by Anna Bunting-Branch, Imran Perretta and Ben Burgis & Ksenia Pedan presented as three solo presentations at Jerwood Space. These commissions comment on separate but equally pertinent socio-political issues.
Anna Bunting-Branch uses science fiction as a methodology to re-vision feminism and its histories, re-mixing elements from a range of sources to generate new and imaginative resonances.
Imran Perretta’s work takes a personal narrative as a starting point and reflects on wider questions surrounding identity, cultural histories and the violence of state surveillance.
Ben Burgis & Ksenia Pedan are presenting Victoria Deepwater Terminal Estate Gallery, a sculptural installation and performance space comprising a showroom for a stunning 2 bed sewer conversion.
Selected by the Jerwood Visual Arts team: Sarah Williams, Head of Programme and Oliver Fuke; Gallery Manager. Shama Khanna, previous Writer in Residence (2014), nominated Ben Burgis & Ksenia Pedan for the first Jerwood Solo Presentations exhibition in July 2016.
Established in 2016 and now in its second edition, Jerwood Solo Presentations offers a platform for early career artists to make and show new work. It aims to foster and develop potentially influential artists who are at critical stages in their career.
