Conceived months before power cuts and rolling blackouts became a much-resented part of our daily lives, the contents of Light Show at the Bank Gallery achieves an extraordinary sense of topicality. The various pieces and the canvas of issues and possibility that they explore are pointedly contemporary in their concerns. Echoing the large-scale projection of a television constantly being switched off from the gallery’s previous show by Matthew Coombes, the show groups many of the psychological concerns of a country and a planet that is leaning on the cliff-edge of an unsustainable future.

Like many of the works on display, The Birds, even while asking complex questions about form and narratives, carries within it a simple longing for the real, the analogue, the patently physical.
