Fine Art Reader and Director of Graduate Studies in the School of Music and Fine Art work, artist Shona Illingworth’s work, Time Present (2016) opens in a new exhibition called Turning Point at the Sayle Gallery, Douglas, Isle of Man from 25 Feb – 26 March. Featuring boundary pushing contemporary artwork by international artists Keith McIntyre, Kevin Atherton, Mark Wallinger and Susan Collins, the exhibition is curated by Helen Fox, Programme Manager for Art, Design and Media at University College Isle of Man.
Time Present explores memory, and individual and cultural amnesia.
Shortlisted for the prestigious 2016 Jarman Award, the widely exhibited Illingworth works across sound, film, video, photography, drawing and painting. Her work combines interdisciplinary research (particularly with emerging neuropsychological models of memory and critical approaches to memory studies) with publicly engaged practice.
