Gary Hill is world-renowned for his bold experiments with moving images, but his body of work is too agile and various to be categorised narrowly as video art.

Regarded as one of the most inventive and important video artists of our time, his works often explore the paradoxes and difficulties of the human attempt to communicate.

The best known of the works in this show, Wall piece, is a high-impact fusion of light, language and body language – while a strobe light flashes in a darkened room, the artist literally throws himself into the act of speech.
