Jennet Thomas: All Suffering SOON TO END!
Presented by Matt’s Gallery, London, U.K.
April 14 – June 6, 2010
Comprised of narrative film, sculpture, sound, and performance, Thomas reconstructed the gallery into two interconnecting chambers. The first is the Dark Chamber in which a 30 minute film plays continuously. Escalating into a series of surprising and rhythmic variations, the film depicts a number of elaborate parallel worlds which become increasingly absurd and disturbing.
The second Purple Chamber entered only through the first, houses a further alternate world, theatrically enclosed in purple tickertape tinsel. Key motifs depicted in the film are exaggerated and distorted – as if by centuries of mistranslation – into sculptural and sound installations, inhabited on occasion by performative presences.
