Mandy Williams in Beyond the Reach of Rivers

Mandy Williams

Beyond the Reach of Rivers is an exhibition by Mandy Williams that brings two photographic series about the sea to the beachfront in Brighton.

Sea Level documents the sea at high tide, viewed through a series of beach shelter windows. Dust and neglect becomes part of the image, reflecting a sense of melancholy that runs through many seaside towns.

Beyond Land is shot at a causeway revealed at low tide. Begun a month after the referendum, the line of people following paths out to sea not only documents our innate connection to water but can also be seen as a metaphor for the times.

Runs: 1 – 6 May 2019
Open: Daily 11am – 5pm. Free admission
Gallery: Fishing Quarter Gallery, 201 Kings Road Arches, Brighton. BN1 1NB
Public Transport: Brighton station – 15 minutes walk

Central Satellite Group Exhibition Factual Enigma

Geoff Titley

Creating or consuming stories appears to be a basic human need and we devise all kinds of means by which to do so. It is therefore not surprising that both makers and viewers of photographs try to concoct or tease stories from them. Yet since stories depend on time lines, still images do not easily lend themselves to narration. They show but they don’t tell. They describe but they don’t explain. They are factual enigmas.
Work by: Kathryn Alkins, Robin Barr, Hady Bayoumi, Héloïse Bergman, Dorota Boisot, Chris Burrows, Simon Butcher, Jan Cylwik, Steve Jones, Teresa Levitt, Hugh Look, Rashida Mangera, Heather Martin, Frankie McAllister, Ingrid Newton, Jim Paterson, Edith Templeton, Geoff Titley, Alec Wyllie.

Mary Lynne Ellis: coercion, alienation, resistance…

Mary Lynne Ellis

In these photographs, taken mainly in London (2016 – 2018), I explore structures of coercion and profound states of alienation generated by the current political climate in the UK and internationally. Recognition of how we (differently) articulate such experiences individually and collectively, on behalf of others and ourselves, is critical. How do the subtlest possibilities of resistance emerge and in what forms, what languages? How do we respond to these? How do we discover the courage to take up the crucial responsibility of supporting and defending those whose voices are stifled or obliterated? The horrific fire at Grenfell Tower highlights the necessity of asking this again and again with a sustained and relentless determination. Mary Lynne Ellis, B.A. Art and Design, Dip.

Clare Park in Breaking Form: Re-Formed

Clare Park

A unique collaboration developed over two decades between Buz Williams, actor movement specialist Debbie Green and photographer Clare Park, resulted in the narrative photographic series Breaking Form: Buz and Parkinson’s. The imagery derived from the collaborators’ shared professional backgrounds of theatre, dance and movement. The pictures and words provided a context in which Buz could communicate in his inimitable style. By placing himself in the public sphere and gaze, he found a sense of power and self-recognition at a time when control was diminishing in his everyday life. After more than 30 years of living with Parkinson’s, Buz died in 2014. Since then, Clare and Debbie have continued working together to create one photograph each month inspired by their lives as friends and artistic collaborators. Breaking Form: Re-Formed emerged as an evocation of their realities – losses and frailties, curiosity and optimism – and as a final salute to the transformative spirit of Buz.

Runs: 2 November to 30 November 2018 (not 7 -14 November)
Private View: 2 November
Open: 10am -10pm daily
Gallery: Riverside Gallery, Waterman’s Art Centre, 40 High St, Brentford, TW8 0DS
Public transport: 65, 267, 237 all stop right outside. The stop is called ‘Watermans Centre’

A study of this project has been made by Buz and Debbie’s daughter, Matilda Williams. As an ethnographic illustrator she has been consciously curating the images and text from her unique position being both inside, and outside the project. The book presents a glimpse backstage, behind the lens, and behind the imagery.
