Artist James Richards curates a group exhibition, presented at Spike Island, that reflects on the theme of memory, language and representation, including works by Cerith Wyn Evans, Christodoulos Panayiotou and Stuart Marshall, amongst others.

James Richards' work often incorporates films by other artists and footage taken from digital and analogue media sources such as found VHS tapes, moving image archives and the Internet. His practice is not merely concerned with the act of sampling, but with reanimation and recontextualisation.

The project is produced by Picture This and presented in partnership with Spike Island.
