No more racing in circles — just pacing within lines of a rectangle, Tris Vonna-Michell

Dates: 11 January – 20 March | Location: Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea

This exhibition is Tris Vonna-Michell’s first regional solo outing in the UK, and the result of a three-month residency period in Southend, which has been nurtured within the context of Focal Point Gallery and developed within the eastern region since 2008. The work it contains aims to extend Vonna-Michell’s set of narratives around the east coast (geographical connections abound between WG Sebald’s writing and the artist’s preoccupation with the political history of Germany, for instance), to become a rumination on the recent history of a town that’s currently undergoing a radical transformation through dramatic regeneration plans. Through a mixed media installation that combines photography, film, sound, performance and concrete poetry, Vonna-Michell scrambles his memory of various local landmark sites.
