Continuum: an exhibition by John Sunderland @ Avenue Gallery
- 27 October — 7 November 2014
Continuum, an exhibition by John Sunderland, explores ideas relating to land, photography and temporality. John uses large-scale digital composite photography to create a fictional woodland, through which he investigates what it is to inhabit land, “to dwell and experience places and to be embodied in space, to be in and of the land rather than above it”.
Drawing on his dual careers as artist and field archaeologist, the work occupies the space between documentation and fine art, investigating the roles and affectivity of photography as a form of visual communication in the interpretation of our relationships to the environment.
