- This was a group exhibition of seven artists each showing 1/2 works. The works I had in the exhibition were two panoramic photographs under the generic title "River Entries" each 3 metres long by 0.5 metres deep.
- A talk about these works was given on 28th April.
- Simon Read’s series of panoramic photographic sequences, captured with camera and apparatus specifically constructed for the purpose, describes the view from the littoral space of a boat floating offshore which is in turn, mediated by the swell of the tide and the prevailing weather conditions. The resulting images question our relationship with representation and orthodox photography, eschewing what Roland Barthes portrayed as intertextuality, to alter how we interface with our experience and expectations.
