That kind of simple but revealing linguistic slippage is behind Heather Phillipson's film A is to D what E is to H, now on show at Baltic, in which the artist narrator can't quite establish whether she's making a film about French Kissing or French Cuisine. To watch it you sit in a yellow paint splashed Peugeot 406 on the gallery floor on a pool of red pigment. The film is a fast collage of found images and crudely filmed video projected on to the inside of the screen as the artist drones on in a flat voiceover. There's a steering wheel to play with and enough silly food/sex double entendres to fill a series of the Great British Bake Off.

Indeed hygiene is a recurring theme in the Baltic exhibition; you enter the.
Indeed Russia serves as a touchstone for the artist. His series of prints based on a production of Shostakovich's opera The Nose are dark interpretations of Nikolai Gogol's original short story about a minor civil servant whose nose jumps off his face and develops a life of its own. Using an unusual sugar lift technique (it involves mixing condensed milk and Indian ink) the artist turns the nose into a gaping void on the printed page, an image of loss and a grim parody of sinister and senseless hierarchies.
