AMIE '08 - Kim Coleman and Jenny Hogarth

Kim Coleman & Jenny Hogarth

Act Natural

8 - 23 November 2008

The Museum of Bath at Work Julian Road Bath BA1 2RH

AMIE '08 is thrilled to present its first commissioned work, a video installation by Kim Coleman and Jenny Hogarth.

Kim Coleman and Jenny Hogarth's work explores simple modifications people make to themselves and their environment. Using light as a medium and a subject, their new collection of projected videos set the natural against the artificial and the choreographed against the non-choreographed.

These looped projected videos create a sensation of liminality, processes in a constant state of change. Their object-based installations reflect back upon their subjects but also on the methods of production and actions involved in creating, compiling and editing.

Installed in the eclectic setting of the Museum of Bath at Work and surrounded by a plethora of memorabilia from the last 200 years of working Bath, Act Natural does not set out to directly engage the exhibits in the museum rather it reflects upon how changing light frames a day, week, month or year.

Preview - 6-9pm Friday November 7

Open Monday - Friday 2-5pm / Sat & Sun 10.30am - 5pm
