For our final event of 2014, Stanley Picker Gallery presents the very first screenings of the entire series of 10 Faces of Anna by film-maker Laura Hypponen and starring Annarose Cattanach, with a special live performance by the actor at 6.30pm & 7.30pm.
10 Faces of Anna is a playful exploration of the multi-layered nature of identity and perception through a series of fictional monologues performed by a single actress and which are being released throughout December on YouTube. Like snapshots, these portraits invite the viewer to fill in the gaps in the story. Is there such a thing as a reliable narrator or an objective listener? To what extent is our reading of a character coloured by our own prejudice?
Accompanying 10 Faces of Anna, our Xmas festivities include a one-night pop-up shop selling specialist Italian produce by 4COSE. Regularly run from the East London studio of artists Cullinan Richards, leaders of MA Fine Art at Kingston University, they will be designing the pop-up shop and an Advent window to be unveiled as part of the annual display with local residents.
