B.OPEN: Dream Time

13 July 2002 - 1 September 2002

Newcastle-born artists Jane and Louise Wilson work collaboratively on their films, video installations and photographs which typically explore the relations between people and architectural space, particularly those spaces that are concealed, secret, or somehow forgotten.

Additional Information

Dreamtime, previously unseen in the UK, documents the launch of the 2001 International Space Rocket at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakstan. The Cosmodrome is the focal point of the Russian space programme. It was from here that in 1961 Yuri Gagarin became the first man to be launched into space and, more recently, where the IS.S star and sunrise were launched.

Like previous works by Jane and Louise Wilson, including Stasi City (1997), Gamma (1999) and Parliament (1999), Dreamtime examines the way in which political and technological power behind the international space programme – is manifested through architecture
