Tris Vonna-Michell has been nominated for his solo exhibition Postscript (Berlin) at Jan Mot, Brussels.

Through fast-paced spoken word live performances and audio recordings Vonna-Michell (born Southend, 1982) tells circuitous and multilayered stories. Accompanied by a ‘visual script’ of slide projections, photocopies and other ephemera, his works are characterised by fragments of information, detours and dead ends.

Some or all of the events in these absurd tales may never have occurred, yet all are narrated with a breathless persuasiveness so as to seem tentatively real.
