Description

Monday 18 September | 6.00 pm (doors open from 5.30 pm) | Swedenborg Hall, Swedenborg House, 20/21 Bloomsbury Way, London WC1A 2TH | FREE | Refreshments served

The Swedenborg Society's artist in residence Bridget Smith will be presenting a screening of the short film Monitoring Space (13 mins) at Swedenborg Hall. This will be followed by a conversation with Bridget about the nature of her residency at the Society; the work she has been producing; and the broader implications of artist residency schemes in general.

Monitoring Space ('this charming film... is clearly a rich and mesmerizing experience' Art Monthly) was filmed at the Mills Observatory, Dundee, featuring interview clips with astronomer and visitor assistant, Robert Law, interspersed with shots of the observatory's collection, displays and surroundings.

The Swedenborg Society's AGM will also take place during this evening offering an opportunity for members to make suggestions, discuss existing projects and nominate trustees. The formalities of the AGM normally last around 30 minutes.



Bridget Smith is an artist who works predominantly with photography and video. She is represented by Frith Street Gallery, London. Recent exhibitions include Now It Is Permitted: 24 Wayside Pulpits (co-curated with Stephen McNeilly), Bloomsbury Festival / Swedenborg Hall, 2016; The Eye Needs A Horizon, Frith Street Gallery, 2016; and If You Want To Talk About Light You Have To Talk About Waves, Focal Point Gallery, Southend-on-Sea, 2015. She has been awarded the Beecroft Public Art Commission, part of the new physics building for the University of Oxford designed by architects Hawkins/Brown.
