Exhibition - Charlotte Prodger at Spike Island in Bristol

Posted on: 23 Sep 2015

Spike Island in Bristol will be hosting an exhibition of Charlotte Prodger’s work and influences from 10th October until 13 December 2015.


Charlotte Prodger’s work is contemporary, relevant and inventive. She combines source material from various internet sources to produce found footage pieces that hit home with an unusual punch. She is also a resident DJ in Glasgow, and studied both there and in London. The exhibition is open from Noon until 5pm from Tuesday to Sunday and entry is free.

There will also be a number of exhibition tours taking place, on Saturday 24th October and 28th November led by Paul Purgas and Elisa Kay respectively.


Paul Purgas has a multi-disciplinary approach that brings together elements of sound and composition, architecture, industrial design and software programming. Originally trained as an architect and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2004, he has since been based in the curatorial department at Arnolfini, Bristol and curated contemporary art and performance projects for Tate Britain, De La Warr Pavillion, Spike Island and Frieze Art Fair. 


Elisa Kay is a dedicated curator who has worked over the last few years on British art since the 1960s. She was the founding director of Flat Time House, a home/studio display of the late John Latham, where she was responsible for curating a programme that contributed to some extensive research on his life and works, initiating a dialogue with subsequent generations of artists which resulted in commissions by artists Laure Prouvost and Bea McMahon. She has also been project manager for  a shared programme of contemporary research and art at the Chisenhale Gallery, The Showroom and Studio Voltaire entitled How To Work Together.
