"New Drawings and Video Work by Simon Woolham"
2001-06-01 until 2001-06-24
Hoxton Distillery
London, , UK United Kingdom

Simon Woolham works with drawings, video and stories recalling memories from his childhood in Manchester. Starting from a thought, he draws large-scale images on paper replicating the memories of specific events. Drawn with an obsession to detail, Woolham uses the conventions of basic representation to communicate locations and occurrences.

Each drawing then is video-ed using a hand held camera travelling across the two-dimensional page, taking a path through each scene with the artist narrating events as he imagined they were experienced. The camera angles are wobbly and unprofessional, reminiscent of home video and childrens television programmes of the 1970s.  Just enough information is given to make  the scenes specific, but not enough to be solely autobiographical.  At Hoxton Distillery, eight new drawings will be shown alongside a television, where a camera pans across each drawing as a male voice recounts poignant episodes.
