Mike Harrison's Stasis opened May 28th.

Stasis is a dramatic installation comprising of 194 suspended toy soldiers (one for each country of the world) suspended in 'Stasis' above a black terrain. 'This exhibition is not a protest of war, but an artistic representation of the way we are all tied together', Mike explains, 'Stasis is the suspension of time; a permanent point in history.' Running alongside the suspended soldiers is the poignant video image of a 'soldier' amid a desolate landscape. He too seems in a state of Stasis, neither victorious or defeated, his clenched hands and vacant stare are the indicators of his state of mind.
