blink IN CITY ARCADE FEATURING GEORGE SAXON – December 15th – December
23rd and January 2nd – January 12th [week days], Blink, Unit One, City
Arcade, Coventry

Have a peep through the blink window and see…..

Snow Light, 2008-09, a video work by artist/film maker George Saxon

The video installation contained within the interior shop window at
blink, explores the traditional depiction of a Christmas card winter
scene. Landscape and snow fall.

The image is one of anticipation and longing, that which has gone by
and the promise of what might be. The moment where we mark our time,
look out of the window on our lives in annual pilgrimage.

The gaze on landscapes almost stripped bare – there is comfort and awe
in the fall of snow…

“The original work was made in response to an electronic Christmas
video greeting which was emailed to me by a film maker friend last
year, and was subsequently re-worked for the shop window at blink”

December 15th – December 23rd and January 2nd – January 12th [week days]
