Lynette Wallworth

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

EXHIBITION: National Glass Centre, Sunderland, UK, March 17 to June 17

Lynette Wallworth (b. 1961, Sydney) is an Australian artist whose practice spans video installation, photography, short film, and performance. In her current body of work, she specialises in the creation of gently immersive installation environments which offer a tactile gateway. Frequently the works are developed in series to provide a sense of a cumulative process that changes over time. The environments are not passive spaces but rely on activation by the participant/viewer. The interplay between the moving image, sound, space and visitor as component elements in the ecosystem of a work is the artist’s primary focus.

Slavery in the Caribbean and other British territories did not end until 1834. In practical terms the 1807 Act prohibited the transport of slaves in British ships, and gave the Royal Navy licence to stop and search the ships of other nations.
