A Shifting Stillness

 

Alice Blanch, “A Shifting Stillness”
16 June – 9 July 2017

“Nothing is created,
nothing is destroyed;
everything is transformation.”
-Antoine Lavoisier

Under our feet there is a fine dance underway between the elements, an ancient dance of pushing, pulling, morphing and forming. During the blink of our existence the landscape might shift in the slightest manner that it goes unnoticed to us but there are shifts and these shifts accumulate to create a river of motion and change in the surface of this planet.

A Shifting Stillness is an ode to the changing nature of the Earth. Working with photographic film in the unassuming box brownie camera Alice Blanch explores ideas of connection and the sublime within the landscape. Alice undertakes strenuous journeys on foot for days at a time in search of things greater than herself and uses her artwork to translate these experiences.

Exhibition Opening: Friday 16th June, 6-9pm

Opening night wine is provided by Coriole Vineyards.
