Gasworks presents the first UK solo exhibition by New York-based artist Lana Lin.
Since the early 1990s, Lin has developed a rich body of film and video work dealing with the processes of identification, memory and the politics of translation. These works are largely informed by experimental and documentary filmmaking and raise questions about media representation and the sense of estrangement it can produce.
Bringing together films, videos and video installations from the 1990s and early 2000s for the first time, the works in this exhibition speculate on the problems of translation across cultures, whether between the so-called East and West, or between our world and other worlds. This exhibition foregrounds Lin's long-standing interest in what is at stake in processes of translation and identification, both personally and politically.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a programme of events placing Lin's work in context – details available soon on Gasworks' website.

Opening hours: Wednesday - Sunday, 12 - 6pm. The exhibition continues until 18 November 2012.
