'The Cambridge Wide Open' :
The group exhibition 'The Cambridge Wide Open' marked Motion Sickness Project’s first-ever open call. The show featured a range of artworks, all produced by artists based in and around Cambridgeshire. The Cambridge Wide Open initially ran from the 6th - 22nd of March but was later extended due to the unforeseen circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic. Within this exhibition I showcased an entirely new body of photographical work entitled ‘Residues’ (2020). This project explores themes of rejection and sentimentality by applying chemical manipulation upon found-photography.
‘Residues is a work with sentimentality at the core of its narrative; a not so uncommon story of a family collection turned out by those to whom the preserved memories were entrusted.’
The full project can now be found on my website which also includes a link to a written piece on the project which I recently wrote as a ‘Close-Up’ for the photographic organisation Shutter Hub.
