Through her practice British-Sri Lankan artist Michelle Williams Gamaker explores race, identity, her love of cinema and the power of storytelling. Her solo exhibition, Our Mountains Are Painted on Glass, opening in DCA galleries on Sat 9 December, includes her new film work, titled Thieves, following on from its premiere at South London Gallery.
Known for her inventive filmmaking and screenwriting, Williams Gamaker draws on and celebrates the classic movies she watched growing up. Taking inspiration from early Hollywood and British cinema, Thieves is a fantasy adventure retelling of The Thief of Bagdad, a silent, black-and-white film from 1924, which was remade in colour in 1940.
