Etienne Robertson, La Minerve, 1803

Etienne Robertson, La Minerve, 1803

Isabella Streffen works in photography, film & video, writing and interstitial media to interrogate questions of perception, looking and desiring, often using low-tech instruments to challenge orthodox wisdom and explore the fundamental problems of vision.

Isabella’s current research examines the use of technologies developed for military vision, their use in art practice, and the impact on questions of subjectivity. She has a particular interest in the Space Race and the forgotten narratives of the Cold War.

For more information about the artist please visit: www.isabellastreffen.net

Dear friends of 25sg


We are soon closing down for the winter and we will be opening again with a new programme of live art in March 2011.

We want to say a big thank you for all the support you have given us over the last year and we will be looking forward to welcoming you and new artists back in the new year. Your enthusiasm for 25sg makes us more than ever want to develop experimental work contextualised within a supportive environment for which we are gaining a profile!

If there is any thing that you would like to add to the blog or facebook pages, any useful and critical feedback, please feel free to post your comments.

We will be launching the new programme along with a new website at the beginning of March 2011 so watch our space.

With our love and thanks,
Carole and Hannah.

Katie Gilman – Belonging(s)

I am driven by the urge to ritualistically define and explore the formal qualities of objects and spaces in a quest to consider my own place in the world….”

For her residency at 25sg Katie will locate, document and collect abandoned materials and objects from the surrounding area and experiment with them in the project space.

Having worked in recent years predominantly making temporary installations in the public realm Katie is looking forward to returning to a more intimate domestic scale and setting. Drawing on her characteristic repetitive, process driven practice she will experiment with found materials with the aim of exploring the undercurrents of memory, separation and loss in her work and to develop lines of enquiry for future development.

Event is free and refreshments will be available. Guests are welcome to bring food and drinks to share.
