"Enchanted: Julie Clark, Alexa de Ferranti and Charlotte Prodger"
2002-02-25 until 2002-03-05
Colville Place Gallery
London, , UK United Kingdom

This exhibition at the Colville Place Gallery profiles the work of four recent graduates. Julie Clark, Alexa de Ferranti and Charlotte Prodger left Goldsmiths College in 2001: Carly Rogers graduated from the Royal College of Art in the same year.

Julie Clark, video
The video pieces and drawings use found footage of little accidents recorded from You've Been Framed to examine moments of embarrassment, when one feels suddenly vulnerable or exposed by a physical kind of lapse and loss of composure.

Clark plays with the timing and this in turn affects the sound, producing a new video, sometimes funny, sometimes weird, sometimes threatening. What is also interesting in the work is the move from a video source to drawing & painting. From the mechanical to the 'hand-made'.

Alexa de Ferranti, video
De Ferranti's video uses time to great effect. You know or expect something will happen, but whenNULL And whatNULL The relief is magical.

Charlotte Prodger, video
Prodger describes her short films as Ghost stories. Who or what are the 'ghosts'NULL The films are spiritual and haunting, like whispered travelogues. Carly Rogers, photography

Rogers makes photographs using materials that are associated with naive or amateur pub tricks and experiments. By making photographs on a large scale 'the objects become ultra-real, this creates an interesting dialogue between intimacy and distance'. You've seen these objects before, but not like this.

Bill Townsend, curator for this show
