25 September 2015 – 10 January 2016
The New Art Gallery Walsall presents a major survey exhibition by Mat Collishaw, his largest UK show to date and his first in a UK public gallery for over ten years. The exhibition testifies to the richness and breadth of Collishaw’s practice and includes sculpture, photography, film and installation.
Included in the exhibition is a major new work, All Things Fall (2014). Based on the Biblical story of the Massacre of the Innocents, it combines old technology in the form of a zoetrope with modern 3D printing. The optical illusion engages and seduces the viewer before they fully realise they are complicit in a scene of genocide. A newly commissioned film of All Things Fall is available to view here.
Concurrent with his exhibition in Walsall, Collishaw presents a specially commissioned work in the gallery of the Library of Birmingham (18 September – 10 January), inspired by the Library’s renowned photography collections.
