Back for its third year running, Tintype presents Essex Road III, 8 specially commissioned short films that each delve into the iconic North London street from which the exhibition takes its name.
Whether it’s Susan Collins‘ ‘Wildlife’ depicting the various creatures (real and not) that inhabit the neighbourhood, or Lynn Marsh‘s ‘Resurrection Restoration’ filmed on location at Gracepoint during the restoration of a former 1930’s cinema and incorporating a gospel choir, each of the 8 contemporary artists who’s work will be screened through the front windows of the gallery, has approached the brief in their own unique manner.
Over the course of 6 weeks, to include Christmas and New Year, these windows on a busy corner of Essex Road will become a public cinema. The films are shown on a loop, back-projected into the window from dusk to midnight, highly visible to the broad range of passers-by, bringing the art straight to them.
The artists on view are:
Alice May Williams
Andrea Luka Zimmerman

Essex Road III will be on view at Tintype from 9 December, 2016 – 14 January, 2017 at Tintype; 107 Essex Road London N1 2SL
