Bryony Gillard discusses 'I dreamed I called you on the telephone', her commission for Jerwood Solo Presentations 2021 with Irene Aristizábal, Head of Curatorial and Public Practice at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and co-curator of British Art Show 9.
I dreamed I called you on the telephone is a new moving-image work which considers loss, illness and time under late-capitalism. Bringing together extracts from poetry, first-person accounts and the artist’s own writing, it ruminates on the intensely singular experience of sickness and grief when living in a world that keeps on moving around you.
This event which will last approximately 60 minutes, will take place indoors at Jerwood Space. We request that visitors wear masks inside the building for this event unless they are exempt. There will be limited capacity at this event to allow social distancing seating, so we ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you are no longer able to attend. We will run a waiting list for tickets if they sell out and will be in touch if tickets become available in the run up to the event.
