New exhibition on Now: Giles Round They bow. Curtain. No applause. Andrea Luka Zimmerman, Common Ground

Common Ground, Andrea Luka Zimmerman - on Another Gaze Journal

'I'm not interested so much in producing a lot of work, but rather work with some depth. So much of what we see on television goes in and out. Shows like 'Benefit Street' are like a hit and run. We become so accustomed to seeing our reality through these false expressions...' Andrea Luka Zimmerman
Common Ground, Andrea Luka Zimmerman 8th April to 17th June 2017
