About the Open Prize 2010 exhibition:
“One of the most impactful and fulfilling exhibitions I have seen this year” - G. Beaudin, ArtFacts.net
“This exhibition of video painting achieved a focus. The DNA of a movement.” - Anthony Haden-Guest
"Michael Lightborne’s Elevator (2009) is another highlight, taking two of Le Bayon’s solitary, still figures and placing them in an elevator, face-to-face – a surrealist staring contest under cold lights. A simple, yet effective piece, Elevator riffs on the impersonality and awkward confinement of modern, urban life." - Stephen Morgan, Screen Addict
