Dutch artist Manon de Boer presents a selection of new and recent works in her first UK exhibition. Situated at the intersection of cinema and art film-making, de Boer’s works explore the nature, impact and nuances of memory. Her technique combines a documentary approach with a subtle editing process and an acute attention to sound in relation to image. Some of her films focus on individuals, often dancers, actors or musicians, recounting their recollections whereas others explore aspects of stillness and movement, and the relationship between the two.

A parallel selection of de Boer’s longer films include the world premiere of Think about Wood, Think about Metal, 2011, which takes the percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky as its subject.
