Wysing Arts Centre Launches "Year of the Improbable" with Mark Aerial Walle Solo Show
For the duration of 2010 Wysing Arts Centre will explore The Improbable in a number of artists' residencies.
CAMBRIDGE.- On 16 January 2010 Wysing Arts Centre officially launched the centre's year of the Improbable with a solo exhibition by London based artist Mark Aerial Waller.

Waller's idiosyncratic film making draws on an extensive knowledge of cinema, ranging from sci-fi, early surrealism and greek tragedy. The Cassiopeia Plan features 3 video installation works, forming a loose trilogy, beginning with two artists faltering on the brink of a journey towards an idyll. The final work, which will be filmed at Wysing, examines the relationship between the individual artist and the artist collective – a relationship Waller relates to the absurd and satirical paradox created by GK Chesterton in The Man who was Thursday. In the 1908 novel, a poet is forced into a conflict between the forces of structure and anarchy, unaware of how intertwined the competing forces are.

As part of the Year of the Improbable, Waller is curating a number a series of events: on 4 Feb, Mike Sperlinger, director of Lux will introduce a screening of Invasion; Thurs, 18 Feb there will be a reading with writer Tom McCarthy. Further events during March will include France Fiction, and Brown Mountain College.

Mark Aerial Waller lives and works in London. He is also the founder of The Wayward Cannon, a platform for event-based interventions in cinematic practices. Recent exhibitions include Resistence Domination Secret, 0-60 ICA 2008; Children of the Revolution, Rodeo Gallery, Istanbul; The Flipside of Darkness, South London Gallery 2008; You Have Not Been Honest, Museo D'Arte Contemporanea Donnaregina in Naples 2007; La Societe des Amis de Judex, Tate Modern 2007; Videozone 3, Centre for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv 2006; Go Between, Magazin 4, Bregenzer Kunstverein, Austria 2005.

For the duration of 2010 Wysing Arts Centre will explore The Improbable in a number of artists' residencies, projects and exhibitions and in a six week long International Camp for Improbable Thinking in June and July. Through the Camp, Wysing aims to bring artists, architects, cultural practitioners, and others together to look at the subject of Improbability. The year of the Improbable will develop on Wysing's position as a reserch and development centre that supports new and unconventional ways of thinking and promotes risk-taking. Further informtion will be available in 2010.
