CCI Alumnus Presents Angel:legnA

University of Portsmouth, Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries Alumnus, Kye Wilson, presents his latest moving image artwork, Angel:legnA. 

Kye Wilson is a Creative Lab Associate to the New Theatre Royal Portsmouth, he is an award winning visual artist and film maker, who uses moving image to create films, video art, and installations, including multi disciplinary, site specific, and live artworks. His works have been performed, exhibited and screened nationally and internationally.

Kye’s latest moving image artwork, Angel:legnA employs the motifs and working methods of celebrated film maker, Andrei Tarkovsky, to explore collective human experience.

Interweaving Tarkovsky’s memories and dreams with those of participants, Kye consciously re-imagines notions of self, in order to demonstrate how readily everyone can engage with and contribute to quality art.

Angel:legnA is supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by Southampton Cultural Development Trust.

“We should long ago have become angels had we been capable of paying attention to the experience of art, and allowing ourselves to be changed in accordance with the ideals it expresses” – Sculpting in Time: Reflections on the Cinema, Andrei Tarkovsky.

The exhibition will be hosted at God’s House Tower, in Southampton, from the 13th to the 19th of November, and will be open between 12 pm, and 5 pm each day. There will also be a private view, and artist talk, on Monday the 13th of November, between 5.30 pm and 8 pm.
