Performing & Visual Arts

HdM GALLERY is delighted to invite you to a champagne opening for Charles Sandison's solo show The Tyranny of Language at the gallery on Thursday 3rd of October from 6 – 8 pm. 


Sandison’s digital artworks reveal the transformative effects of light and language, evolving as the structures that form the words multiply in many different languages. His show forms part of a series of HdM GALLERY exhibitions that connect art with technology.

Scottish born, Sandison is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art and now lives in Finland where he is the former head of Fine Art at Tampere. Sandison’s work is in the collections of many public museums from Denver to Paris. He has also had many solo museum shows, most recently, Language is Dead (façade projection) Helsinki Art Museum, Helsinki, Finland (2017) and Axis Mundi, Mudo, Musée de l’Oise, Beauvas, France (2015) and Chamber, Denver Art Museum, USA (2013), since his first solo show at London’s Lisson Gallery (2004). 

Sandison will present a new site-specific digital projection for Frieze Week from 30th September - 6th October. The work draws together language and technology. Illuminating Conduit Street, Sandison says of the new work:‘every building façade in the world has an invisible language within it, and this site-specific work brings that narrative to the surface.’
