Julie Henry: Going Down

Julie Henry's dual screen video projection, Going Down is about watching; watching sports and gallery-goers watching divergent reactions to a single sporting event, 90 seconds of agony and ecstasy of the 'home' and 'away' spectators at a Premier League Football match in London.
The work was shown in conjunction with two other solo exhibitions, Martin Parr – Think of England and Nina Toft – “The one I think I am…”. The exhibitions were part of “UK Today: A New View”, a city-wide series of presentations of new art, theatre and music from the UK. The PHG exhibition ran from June 11 to July 31, 2005.

Texts: Beating the Drop by Steven Bode and Stadium Fixtures, Museum Fixtures by curator Bill Jeffries.
