"Close to You: Photography by Tom Gleeson and Claudine Hartzel"
2001-09-07 until 2001-09-30
Hoxton Distillery
London, , UK United Kingdom

Showing the work of Tom Gleeson and Claudine Hartzel, close to you explores myths of romance through artistic practices firmly based in conceptualism. Both artists investigate the fine line between image and its representation with new work made specifically for Hoxton Distillery.

Tom Gleeson's video and photographic work turns to the cinematic excesses of romantic love and to how this language informs communication. A series of photographs of sleeping friends and lovers fill one wall of Hoxton Distillery, while a video recounts a tale of obsessional desire.

Hartzel too looks to the dreams of romance in her multi-slide projector installation. Referencing the clichéd illustrations of Mills and Boon novels, she creates a parallel universe in the space of Hoxton Distillery filled with utopian ideas and symbols of romance.

Close to You is curated by Lisa Le Feuvre.
