What I thought I saw, saw me is a new sound work where Bronwen Buckeridge invites a medium and her spirit guides to select items for exhibition from the storage rooms of the Matt’s Gallery archive. The work will be presented in Poland where the idea for Matt’s Gallery first came into being, and which is arguably the spiritual home of the archive.
In her search for access to a world that is hidden from view or beyond sensory experience Buckeridge creates a stage for scenarios that are at once real and imagined. Working across a broad range of media, she invites us to a territory that is deliberately unstable, and into the shadow of an intangible, unknowable other.
Solo presentations include Estuary 2016 and the Whitstable Biennale in 2014 and 2012. Buckeridge has exhibited extensively in group shows: Revolver II at Matt’s Gallery in 2014, SV10 at Studio Voltaire, FOAM at Grand Union, Birmingham 2015, and Wysing Space-Time Festival 2014. Recent residences include Blackrock 2015, WAKE at Dilston Grove in 2011 and the LookOut in Aldeburgh, awarded by Studio Voltaire in 2013. Buckeridge studied Modern Languages at the University of Manchester before completing her MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art in 2007.
