See all-new works in this ambitious solo show from Turner Prize-winning artist Elizabeth Price.

Price’s work combines archival materials, live-action footage, motion graphics and CGI, using rhythmic edits of music and image. Her richly layered narratives explore social histories and the shifting terrain of analogue and digital cultures.

The exhibition features two installations: KOHL and FELT TIP (both 2018), which explore different eras of industry. KOHL is a synchronised four-channel video, describing ghostly presences that are said to be emerging from abandoned coal mines in the north of England. Its companion piece, FELT TIP, is a six-metre-high, two-channel projection that uses the simple necktie as a motif for social and technological change within the workplace.

Price’s exhibition also includes a series of pinhole photographs, each four metres high, which fill a whole gallery, floor-to-ceiling. Price makes these pieces by manipulating images sourced from 1970s fashion magazines. She leaves only the floating garment, which is then captured by the pinhole camera to create an unnervingly detached figure, hovering in a dream-like haze.
