Lindsey Seers

If you haven't yet seen Altermodern at Tate Britain in is definitely worth checking out for Lindsey Seers' beautifully clever film within its very own viewing pod. Skirting between fact and fiction it is a kind of filmic collage. The hook is that Lindsey didn't speak when a young child as she was a purely visual person and instead turned her body into a camera, exposing film through her open mouth. Eventually she grew out of this phase and became a projector. Along the way we encounter superstition and lots of clever stuff about the history of film and photography. Seers' recent show at Matt's Gallery was also superb but has now finished so if you missed it hurry along to the Tate now.
