The Lettering Paintings and Drawings | 12th November - 12th January
Nowhere Less Now3 [Flying Saucer] | 26th September - 26th December

Materials: 3 synchronised monitors, 5.1 surround sound, mylar curtain, 6 geometric forms, folded paper, seating and carpet.

There is no singular way to sum up this work. It does not really want to be explained by an elucidating text; it wants to rest in the medium that shapes it. It does not follow a convention of story telling that governs cinema. What it does follow is a freewheeling set of associations and the vagaries of our interpretations of events. As a construct it wants to be like consciousness might really be … fragmented, discontinuous, oscillating,...

Super(seed)ed/an extension of Care(less) | 1st April - 31st March

100 packets of sunflower seeds were posted to recipients across Europe, the majority being in the UK and Ireland, some seeds were posted to those who responded to a Facebook posting requesting that I send them the seeds if they send me an address. The action was inspired by the death of my father who had given me sunflowers to grow. After I lost him I planted 100 sunflowers both tall and short in our garden. I took the policy that every seed that germinated should survive. It was a cathartic exercise that I wanted to share - this year the seeds of my father's memorial falls into the...

Through the use of digital animation, robotics, film, drawing and sound design Lindsay Seers has created a complex and layered environment that explores a world experienced differently.

Materials:  VR Headsets with headphones, wall paintings, shadow lamps, medical swivel stools, 6 drawings and sunflower heads.

This work addresses hallucination and embodied viewing in relation to our current social and economic constructs regarding attitudes to the elderly and social care in Britain. It is also concerned with the hallucinatory condition of filmic mediums (here specifically Virtual Reality) which feel closer to how the mind itself works rather than how this is conveyed in the more historic film mediums. Alongside the medium itself the work questions the...

Materials: 23 framed photographs, 4 monitor works and a projection with stereo sound

In the morass of general political/social ideas about the world and its current state, each one of us has to navigate this excess of divergent information with our fleshy ageing bodies and our own specific and local perceptions. How do we conceive of a "race" or of  a "nation"? These are categories that can not be easily accounted for except in generalisations that do not fit the detail. Consciousness itself is what underpins any semantic human thought and...

2018

An ambitious moving image installation by Lindsay Seers exploring schizophrenia and contemporary insights into the condition.

Shaped by philosophical ideas and scientific research concerned with the phenomenon of consciousness, Seers’ work combines industrial robotics with a three-screen video projection.

The exhibition draws on first-person accounts, discussions with experts, and an experimental treatment known as Avatar Therapy, in which those living with schizophrenia can speak to their persecutors in a digital world.

Using Victorian surgeon James Miranda...
