Falling Away brings together eight vertiginous film installations by British artist Catherine Yass at London’s Ambika P3 in her biggest exhibition to date. Spanning the past two decades, the show includes a new work made in response to the impact of COVID-19 and global warming. In the vast subterranean spaces of Ambika P3, viewers will experience the dizzying and disorientating effects of Yass’s films, which portray architecture in a state of construction, abandonment or demolition.
Drawing attention to the conditions of social and psychological instability in which we currently live, Yass throws a spotlight on the role of public services, whose fragility has been exposed by the ongoing pandemic. One film documents a hospital undergoing demolition from the perspective of the dying building; in another, the BBC appears vulnerable as its flagship TV Centre is dismantled for real estate.
