All Small Things Must Evolve Slowly

In Exhibition News by Alun Kirby

My first solo exhibition of cameraless photographs, ‘All Small Things Must Evolve Slowly’, is in place at the New Schoolhouse Gallery, York, from 25th July until the end of September 2017.


The exhibition brings together three recent working strands. Firstly, the ‘Dream/Place‘ series pieces, playing on the contradictory certainty and vagueness of location-associated memory. Next, the cultural memory of the ‘1000th of a Wish‘ project. FInally, some new abstracts examining the reconstructive nature of memory. These can be seen below.


The exhibition plays on the deliberately thoughtful and time-consuming nature of the process, and the mood created in the space; a counterpoint to the pace of life in the outside world. It provides time to think and remember, to allow memories to arise and the mind to wander.


Two articles about this work have featured in the York Press recently, one of which can be read here.
