Films and Projects by Karen Guthrie & Nina Pope

A rare opportunity to enjoy the collected films and projects by artist duo Karen Guthrie & Nina Pope, in this their first gallery exhibition since they won the Northern Art Prize in 2008.

Working collaboratively under the name Somewhere since the mid 90s, their participatory projects range from interactive online worlds to – in summer 2014 – a vast community-built ‘model village’ made from cob (an ancient earth building technique), a commission for the University of Cambridge’s North West Cambridge Development. Visitors to the exhibition will encounter a diversity of work from the analogue to the digital – from a cob-based installation to earlier examples of the artists’ ground-breaking digital and video works.

Their acclaimed documentary films shine a light on often marginalised or unknown communities ranging from historical re-enactors (Living with the Tudors, 2007, based at Kentwell Hall near Cambridge) to seaside fugitives (Jaywick Escapes, 2012). Of their first film Bata-ville: We Are Not Afraid of the Future (2005) critic Andrew O’Hehir said “It’s drily funny, sad, deeply weird and British to the very core of its being.”

This exhibition follows the artists from their early video installations and websites to later large-scale sculptural work and feature-length films, screened daily in a gallery cinema.
