24th May - 18th July
Kelly Richardson is one of the leading representatives of a new generation of artists working with digital technologies to create hyper-real, highly charged landscapes, alongside figures such as John Gerrard and Saskia Olde Wolbers. She draws on science-fiction cinema, literature and the history of landscape painting in works that interweave fine art, animation, real footage of spectacular natural wildernesses and Hollywood special effects, to create highly sophisticated and immersive works realised over several months, and sometimes years. She has shown work in Beijing, Gwangju and Busan biennales, Toronto International Film Festival, Sundance Film Festivals of 2009 and 2011 and has exhibited in major museums in the USA and Canada including the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington; Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo; and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montreal and the Art Gallery of Ontario. From Canada, she lives in Whitley Bay in the North of England.
For her exhibition at Void, Kelly Richardson presents three large-scale video installations, Mariner 9, Exiles of the Shattered Star and Orion Tide.
