Flash Bang

Flash Bang comprises two works - Elisa Pone's I'm looking for something to believe in, 2007 and Katie Daviesí 38th Parallel, 2008.

In form at least, the structure of the exhibition is largely the same as the previous exhibition The Perception Instruction, it therefore seems appropriate to repeat a slightly modified version of the introductory paragraph:
Placing these two artworks together, at a very basic level, encourages us to look for patterns and similarities between the artworks, which appear both incidentally and intentionally. From the outset the works have little in common, aside from the fact that they are both video works, shown in the same space.

Some Assumptions:
- The works may act as a counterbalance to one another.
- The calm but politically intense 38th Parallel might balance out the visually climatic, and audibly explosive I'm looking for something to believe in.
- The combination of both works in the gallery might lead the sense of one or other astray.

Additional information
- Katie Daviesí 38th Parallel was filmed at the Demilitarized Zone on the border between North and South Korea, a boarder that has been in place since the Korean War ended in 1953, and is one of the most heavily militarized borders in the world.
