SAM LAUGHLIN : UNTITLED
Aug 25 - Nov 10, 2018
Sam Laughlin’s (b. 1990) photographic practice is concerned with the state of the natural and manmade world, and our place within it. His photographs focus on patterns of animals’ behaviour in close observation, revealing natural signs and residue that suggests their presence in the landscape. This process allows the viewer to experience intimate and fragile spaces that exclude human presence.
In 2015 Laughlin was invited to create a series of documentary photographs that record the underlying fabric of our new Gallery during the construction process. Untitled records Laughlin’s encounters with temporary situations within the site, some incidental, others he arranged himself as interventions.

ANYA LEWIN : FEZ: THE ROYAL SCENT
Feb 16 - Apr 20, 2019
'Fez: The Royal Scent' is inspired by Anya Lewin's family photographs and public archives. Combining archival research, with fictional recreations, Lewin's film opens up questions about historical, narrative and place. 'Fez: The Royal Scent' will join 'With Heartfelt Gratitude for the Painless Treatment' (2008) and 'Chez Paulette on the Sunset Strip' (2013) to complete Anya Lewin's trilogy of moving image installations, shown here together for first time.

STEFAN GEC : THE SHEPHERD'S WHISTLE
Feb 16 - Apr 27, 2019
'The Shepherd's Whistle' comprises the discovery of strategic cities in the UK, created during the Cold War by Soviet Intelligence. Artist Stefan Gec travelled sections of these routes on a reconditioned M-72 Soviet army motorcycle and sidecar from 1972.
The exhibition includes documentary footage of this journey, and the work calls upon current issues around identity and migration.
