Sierra Metro presents group exhibition A useful-looking useless object, with work by Johann Arens, Shelly Nadashi, Emily Wardill and Jennifer West. Through a particular emphasis upon the use of objects as vehicles, and their agency as apparatus within filmic construction, this exhibition investigates notions of film and materiality. The work of Arens, Nadashi and West will be punctuated by a screening of Emily Wardill’s Game Keepers Without Game (2009), during the preview on Saturday 4 February at 7:30pm, and again, on Saturday 18 February at 4pm.
