At Once It Dreams In Multiple Tenses
Peter Glasgow and Sun Park

At Once It Dreams In Multiple Tenses is a collaborative project by Peter Glasgow and Sun Park. The exhibition at South Kiosk features a selection of recorded improvisations - words appearing in and out amongst gaps, pauses, full stops and ends. These move through shapeshifting pictures, images that are refreshed every sentence or every word. 

This project was initiated as a playful attempt to explore two artists’ shared interest in language and its structure whilst navigating their distinctive relationships with an act of writing, grammar, construction and creativity.

Peter Glasgow is a visual artist who lives and works in Belfast. His work explores structure and signification, both within language and in an external world of signs. Individual works use modes of framing, the interpretive and the act of talking about something to transform their subject. He graduated in 2015 from MA Fine Art Printmaking at the Royal College of Art and was a co-director of Catalyst Arts in Belfast. Exhibitions include Mediating Signals at Flax Art Studios, Belfast (2021), Tap, tap, tap at millimetre02, Kingsgate Project Space, London (2019) and Imagining Lines In Other Narratives for Art Licks Weekend 2018.

Sun Park is a South Korean artist based in London for the time being. She is interested in silence, emptiness and fatigue produced by structures of power. She works with moving image as a way to rearrange perimeters and unveil limitations of language and image making. She graduated from MA Artists’ Film & Moving Image at Goldsmiths and is part of Ballpark Collective, a group of moving image artists producing a regular exhibition series: Reality Sandwiches.
