Images for this exhibition
British artist Helen Dowling (b. 1982) uses a multitude of images that she has found, downloaded or made herself to create associative worlds that border on abstraction. Her atmospheric films play with rhythm, colour and sound, presenting an alienating view of our existence. From heavenly bodies to wandering humans, images appear in apparently random succession, creating hypnotic stories with no linear plot. The show at GEM will be Dowling’s first solo exhibition in a museum, and it will combine several video works and sculptures to create a total installation.
