Did you think I would leave you dying, when there’s room on my horse for two?

After a series of collaborations between Mexico and London. Chalton Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Guy Oliver. Oliver presents a new body of work exploring the complicated lines between comedy and tragedy. Collated from extensive archival material, the exhibition presents variously collaged and dissected found imagery and footage that attempt to unpick a notion of trauma and disorder within a sense of collective identity.

Guy Oliver (b. 1982) graduated from The Royal College of Art, Painting MA, 2015.
