Exhibition of video, sculpture and photographic work by leading Australian artist, Christian Thompson at the Hospital Club Gallery

The Hospital Club Gallery presents ‘We Bury Our Own’, the debut London show of leading Australian artist, Christian Thompson. A ground breaking photographic series and video work produced in dialogue with the renowned Pitt Rivers Museum collection, University of Oxford.  Previously shown in New York, Oxford, Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore, Virginia and now the final stop at the Hospital Club, Covent Garden. Christian Thompson is an inaugural Charlie Perkins Scholar who recently made history when he became one of the first Aboriginal Australians to be admitted to the University of Oxford in its 900 year existence. Exhibited internationally, Thompson’s stellar career spans over a decade and encompasses photography, video, performance, sound and sculpture. The strength of his work is its anachronistic ability to reference the past while simultaneously contemporising an ancient culture.
