    Mat Collishaw: Retrospectre

    BFI Gallery, BFI Southbank, London, SE1
    26 February – 9 May 2010

    Admission free

    Mat Collishaw has been a significant figure on the international art scene for over 20 years. His new commission for the BFI Gallery is in response to the visionary work of the late Georgian/Armenian film director Sergei Paradjanov. The project fuses sculpture and the moving image in an atmospheric work evoking the spirit of Paradjanov and forms part of the 2010 festival of his work and legacy. A season of Paradjanov films in the BFI Southbank cinemas complements the show. Mat Collishaw opens in the BFI Gallery on 26 February and runs until 9 May 2010.

    Collishaw and Paradjanov share a perceptive understanding of the mechanics of beauty which they both exploit in their art – combining diverse cultural elements, using framing devices and employing a sensual use of colour. For this commission Collishaw is assembling original antique objects, abandoned windows and two way mirrors together with video footage, both existing and recently shot in Armenia. Paradjanov’s trademark style of making films in which every shot resembles a collage is reflected in the piece. By projecting digitally manipulated images on to objects, Collishaw fuses the two dimensionality of the moving image with the three dimensionality of sculpture. The new installation, whilst being defined by Collishaw’s very distinctive style, poetically conveys the spirit of Paradjanov’s artistic endeavour, creating a fairytale world where good and evil, sacred and profane, love and violence merge.

    Haunch of Venison's Press Release:

    For his first solo exhibition in Berlin, British artist Mat Collishaw presents a corrupted digital manipulation of Francis Bacon's 'Pope Innocent X', itself famously appropriated from a Velazquez original. Entitled 'The End of Innocence' and projected on a monumental scale, Collishaw's rendering of the iconic portrait presents a densely striated image, its forms constantly dissolving and reconstituting in the manner of the 'digital rain' popularised by the Matrix film trilogy.
