June 2021: Film by Laura Page

Laura Page’s film ‘Inertia versus Transfiguration’ was made in response to Material Voice’s exhibition, ‘Matter Out of Place’. It is inspired by the materials, textures and surfaces of the artists’ work, their role as a conduit for experiences and ideas and the ways in which the artists have adapted their ways of working and connecting during the pandemic.

The film is about changes in our rhythm of life, perceptions and our relationships to others and the objects around us. It nods to the tensions between freedom and imprisonment, frustration and liberty, loneliness and inner peace/spirituality, all of which we can feel at the same time and with great intensity, particularly with the ebbs and flows following a life-changing event.

Material Voice’s exhibition Matter Out of Place continues at Yorkshire Artspace‘s Persistence Works gallery until 10th July 2021. The gallery is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 11am – 5pm.
