An exhibition of work by Nick Berkeley, combining images from Time After Time (1999) and The Wild ones (2016) shown together for the first time.
Private view: Sat 1st Oct, 7-9pm
TIME AFTER TIME
Time AfterTime consists of a series of fibre based photographic prints, up to 1.9m wide, utilising historic slit scan, race finish imagery. Consequently and almost uniquely in artistic terms, the subjects are separated by time rather than space – or to put it another way, time elapsed is represented spatially. They thus combine sporting, scientific and aesthetic qualities in one heady mix. First shown at the Photographers Gallery, London in 1999 and later that year at Bridport Arts Centre, the original body of work returns to Bridport along with examples that have never been exhibited.
THE WILD ONES
“Multimedia artist Nick Berkeley had been interested in utilising iconic gig imagery for some time, and the Suede footage had been posted online by fans. This proved to be a fertile starting point. Working with low res downloaded files afforded Nick a degree of immediacy and freedom in deconstructing the material, applying his trademark lush aesthetic in the process. The resulting photographic prints, signed by the artist and band members Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler, morph analogue and digital technology in a unique series of re-imaginings. The photographs are at once crude and sublime, reflecting their sweaty, romantic origins.” (Bill Cummings, In Camera)
