Our Mountains Are Painted On Glass at DCA

DCA welcome award-winning moving image artist Michelle Williams Gamaker with her solo exhibition Our Mountains Are Painted On Glass.


Developed in collaboration with South London Gallery, Our Mountains Are Painted On Glass, premieres Michelle Williams Gamaker’s newly-commissioned film Thieves. Responding to films watched during childhood, Gamaker raises important conversations about race, representation, identity and agency.

Thieves evokes early cinema and Technicolor classics, blending practical and analogue methods of special effects with contemporary technology to combine past and present filmmaking. The film is projected surrounded by props, which draw from the film’s set, alongside cinema ephemera of the actor Sabu collected by Williams Gamaker since 2015. 

For the first time, Thieves is shown alongside two film installations produced by the artist, The Bang Straws (2021) and The Eternal Return (2019), both part of the artist’s Fictional Activism trilogy.
