Play It Again: The Art of Remaking

04 July 2018 @ 10:00 - 17:00
Firstsite, Colchester, is pleased to present Play It Again: The art of remaking, an exhibition featuring ‘remade’ objects, events and films, produced by artists and the public. The exhibition showcases how history, contemporary culture and our own everyday experiences inspire repetition, remaking and reenactment in different forms.
The exhibition includes the work of contemporary artists Heather Agyepong, Laura Eldret, Michel François and Guillaume Désanges, Sofia Hultén, Hetain Patel, David Sherry, Allison Smith and Gillian Wearing. Also on display will be Star Wars Uncut, a project that was produced through ‘crowdsourcing’ material from members of the public, and historic reproductions made by Peter Shorer.

Alongside live action role-play, reenactment has traditionally focused on immersion into history, enabling an individual to experience a past era, event or lifestyle. Play It Again engages with artists, makers and fans to explore how this enthusiasm transfers into art and popular culture.
