Heather Phillipson, Dream Land, film still, 2023. With thanks to BBC Archives.

Cooper Gallery and Art Night are delighted to invite you to the preview of Dream Land, a first look at the major new commission by artist Heather Phillipson. 
Dream Land is a new commission by Heather Phillipson which incorporates archival BBC wildlife footage, recast as hallucination. Opening with its bug protagonist sucked through a vacuum cleaner nozzle, the film lands us in an alternative world which resembles our own but as if broadcast from another dimension. Remixing and revoicing remarkable scenes from innovative 1980s nature documentaries, Dream Land presents earthly life as a dream.
The preview is free, open to all and unticketed.
Join us from 6pm for a drinks reception by 71 Brewing serving alcoholic draft beers. Non alcoholic options will also be available. 🍻
Following the exhibition preview the exhibition will be open Monday to Saturday, 12–5pm until Saturday 1 July 2023.
