The Night the Mountains Moved (2020)

Location: Ground Floor Exhibition Space, Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre

Anna Brownsted’s installation responds to a project bringing together patient ambassadors for Blood Cancer UK and stem cell researchers working at the Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre. Through a series of stop-motion animation workshops held via Zoom, participants developed hand-cut animation sequences exploring their experiences of ‘the unknown’ in relation to living with blood cancer, the challenges of research and the global uncertainties of Covid-19.

Anna's animated film Futuramic Unknown (2020) features project participants’ stop-motion sequences created during the project.

Anna Brownsted works across a wide range of media including sound, installation, performance and participation. Her process is often collaborative, involving interdisciplinary exchanges that directly inform the development of her work, which is shown in museums, galleries, theatres and public spaces.
