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.

SEAN LYNCH : A MURMUR, REPEATED
Oct 19, 2018 - Jan 3, 2019
Artist Sean Lynch presents a trailer for his new artwork ‘A Murmur, Repeated’ (2018) on the video wall in the foyer of the Gallery.
'A Murmur, Repeated', brings together Lynch's explorations of Southampton’s urban fabric and the ludic history of his native Ireland’s bardic culture. This new artwork poses the question: what would a poetic mind of medieval times make of Southampton's shopping centres, ring roads, and city regeneration?
