In her largest solo exhibition to date, Gail Pickering explores the themes of media manipulation in her latest body of work. "Mirror Speech" examines the impact of "Videogazette" in Villeneuve, France, a pioneering social experiment in community television; where the so called future of cable, left the residents with a sense of distrust. The artist addresses the issues of those involved with the project back in the 1970s, through fictionalising the literal cuts of the historical material of the final remaining live broadcasts. By referring to historical and political events she speculates on both the notions of temporality and presence.
