CARDINALS & LATITUDES


Borderlands, Text + Work Gallery, Bournemouth.

Intro Space, Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth.


The series Latitudes and Cardinals were both created as part of a joint exhibition with Tom Hall, Lee Mackinnon and Frank Brown. Tom and myself produced visual works, Lee and Frank produced short stories and reflections on borders and bordering. These particular works evolved from detritus already in the studio—the matter left over from incomplete projects, ideas, and test pieces, which became taken up into a series of romantic vignettes around islands. The images imagined these small, apparently discrete, piles of material as isolated outposts. In part they are also reflections on the negotiation of space in which to create work.
