John Wood and Paul Harrison: Obstacle Course
Film and Video Umbrella touring exhibition in association with firstsite and John Hansard Gallery
Sat 13 Nov – Sat 11 Dec 1999
As the last seconds of the twentieth century tick by, John Wood and Paul Harrison offer an engaging and witty perspective on the scramble towards the millennium. Six video monitors arranged around the gallery offer not so much a view of a race against time but a play in its passing. The video works of these artists are characterised as much by their compositional finesse as by their droll and infectious humour.
The exhibition is supported by Arts Council England. Production supported in part by West Midlands Arts, Video post-production supported by Lighthouse, Wolverhampton
