ON PHOTOcopy - opening night

Friday night saw the opening evening of ON PHOTOcopy at the 44AD Artspace in Bath (4 Abbey Street) - It’s a fairly small space in the Basement Gallery where the exhibition was located. Actually, it’s not so dissimilar to Bank Street Arts where I’ve had work displayed on a couple of occasions, including Speak My Language which was what was included in the exhibition at 44AD.

In terms of how my own work looked, it was perhaps a little dark, although that is also how it actually is - it just looked "more so" when printed on a photocopier, perhaps it was just a lack of dynamic range and the use of white paper... Still, interesting to see it produced that way, I'd probably have to prepare it a little more if I were to produce a photocopy zine of the work (which is an option I might explore further).

In terms of other work there, Tanya had some of the MA1 work from FFF on display, there was some more photography, some poetry/written word, drawings and other stuff - the largest selection on display looked to me like the photocopier was used with nothing to copy - just "noise" I guess. Something about the randomness of the work was interesting. Chaotic. You can see it spread across the floor...

These are a just a few photos from my own brief document of the night - I didn’t stay long (and therefore didn't do the old “TABULA Rasa” approach) as we had quite a trip back up the motorway to Lancashire to complete...
