Michelle Ussher in 'The Green Ray' at Wilkinson Gallery, London

18 February 2016

Michelle Ussher has been curated into The Green Ray at Wilkinson Gallery, London; an exhibition that takes its starting point from French new wave director Eric Rohmer’s 1986 film Le Rayon vert (The Green Ray). Rohmer’s film connects thematically with Jules Verne’s 1882 novel by the same name, and both film and book deal with a search for the scientific phenomenon of a rare green flash at sunset, which Verne interprets as revealing our thoughts and those of others ‘as if by magic’.

Curated by Andrew Hunt, this group exhibition, which takes place over Wilkinson’s two galleries, presents a wide variety of material that deals with contemporary subjects of literature, cinema, painting, writing and the post-digital sublime.

Opening on February 27 the exhibition runs until 10 April.
