Keeping it Real: An Exhibition in 4 Acts: Act 3: Current Disturbance Opening friday 17th December

17 December 2010 – 6 March 2011 Gallery 7
Current Disturbance is a room-filling environment made from stacked wire cages, light bulbs and the amplified sound of electric currents. As the bulbs light up and fade out at irregular intervals, they sporadically illuminate the surrounding room and the unruly mass of wiring covering the floor.

This installation by renowned British-Palestinian artist Mona Hatoum, whose ambitious work in sculpture and video is rooted in her early performances, emanates a pervasive sense of threat as much as it generates an alluring spectacle.

Referencing both the human body and rigid systems of abstraction, it combines sound and vision to create a highly charged experience.

The third in a series of four displays from the D. Daskalopoulos Collection, Greece, gives a chance to see this extraordinary artwork for the first time in London. Keeping it Real is part of the Gallery’s ongoing programme of opening up important public and private collections for everyone.
