The exhibition Where You Are Not, which is taken from Solnit’s Blue of Distance, will take place at Copeland Gallery, Peckham, 24 – 28 September.
Bringing together a show of various disciplines – sculpture, painting and photography – to explore how artists conceptually approach and utilise the colour blue.
Alongside the show, an artist talk will take place, chaired by Duncan Wooldridge – between the photographic artists: Alexander Mourant, Tom Pope and Simone Mudde. On Blue and Photography, will utilise the colour blue as a trigger point, leading each artist into an interesting conversation about approach to medium, practice and a sense of being in the world.
