Details

Stephen Sutcliffe is an award-winning British filmmaker and video artist who was born in Harrogate and raised in Wakefield.

This major solo exhibition in The Calder* will include a newly commissioned video installation based on the play, The Contractor (1969) by the Wakefield-born playwright and novelist, David Storey. Storey’s work has long been an inspiration for Sutcliffe and the exhibition will complement A Tender Tumult: The Art of David Storey.

For this exhibition Sutcliffe has responded to themes suggested by the simple plot of The Contractor which examines class and cultural differences through the turbulent relationship of an employee and the employer’s son as they erect and dismantle a marquee for a wedding party.

Sutcliffe frequently alludes to literary and theatrical structures in his work, which marries archive broadcast material with newspaper clippings and photographs. The resulting video collages create disjunctures, contradictions and double takes.

*The Calder is open Tues – Sun, 12 – 4.30pm during exhibition periods; Closed Mondays, except bank and local school holidays.
