The first UK exhibition of work by the Tucson-born, New York-based artist.

At the show's heart is a screening of Curtains, a fractured portrait of the labour involved in the creation of a Hollywood blockbuster that reveals the layers behind each image seen on screen.

Actors frequently play their roles against plain green screens rather than on sets or on location, and the 50-minute film shows the technicians – increasingly important players themselves – digitally piecing films together far removed from the action in post-production studios in London, Vancouver, even Asia.

Raven’s anaglyph film of layered images is a nod to the first 3D technology, stereoscopy, a photographic technique used from the 1850s in which two views shot from slightly different vantage points appear as a single image with the appearance of spatial depth.
