For summer 2012, we have two major new site-specific commissions by internationally acclaimed artists Mark Wallinger and Lindsay Seers, which respond to Margate and use footage shot in the town.

Sinema Amnesia, Mark Wallinger
Mark Wallinger’s Sinema Amnesia is a special viewing space overlooking the sea behind the gallery. It shows the film The Waste Land, an ever-changing, endless picture of unfolding time. A lens is fixed to the structure recording the view out to sea. The recorded image is played back inside the space 24 hours later, like a delayed camera obscura. The film is inspired by T.S Eliot’s famous poem The Waste Land, partially written on Margate Sands and exploring the disconnected time of modernity. Wallinger’s time machine calls memory and perception into question.

Entangled², Lindsay Seers
Lindsay Seers’s film installation Entangled² captures a pair of female actresses dressed as men on the stages of Margate’s two great entertainment venues, the Theatre Royal and the Winter Gardens.
