Left and Right Back, High Up, Two Small Windows
Alexandra McIntosh & Nicolaus Schafhausen (Eds.)
A major new work by London-based contemporary British video artist Hannah Rickards at the Fogo Island Arts, Grey Light is a two-screen projected video installation with eight channels of sound. Structured rhythmically around the pattern of a foghorn sounding, the piece embraces the foghorn as an auditory marker for non-visibility, or imagelessness. This slender exhibition catalog and artist book, the second publication from Fogo Island Arts, features Rickard’s striking new photographic imagery drawn from the installation’s materials and production process. Like Rickards’s work, the publication aims to bridge the distance between visual experience and its expression in language, whether spoken, written or gestural. Text by British arts writer Melissa Gronlund and conversation between Rickards and internationally distinguished curator Nicolaus Schafhausen. Rickards’s work has been widely exhibited in Canada, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Whitechapel Gallery, London, Johann Koenig, Berlin and Witte de With, Rotterdam.
