Rebecca Lennon ‘We are Stuck Here Together’
28 October – 27 November 2010
Rebecca Lennon’s first solo show at Ceri Hand Gallery draws together the found, the stolen, the forged, the made and the re-made in a series of exchanges and situations, nuanced with an often ritual, misplaced and convoluted drive to connect, act or validate.
Old photos bought by weight of the pile in markets and on eBay, art sent to a debt
collection agency as an offering for the debt, a film clip of a man acting out a sleep
disorder, and a family member who swam across Morcambe bay in exchange for a
wooden chest of drawers, are brought together in a show eating its tail, perpetually
shifting between the personal and inauthentic, humour and something darker.
Part of the Independents Liverpool Biennial strand.
