Join us for an exploration of the impact of images – what do we associate with what is presented to us, how do we read a photograph without title or context and what are the stories we discover?
John Cowpertwait captures footwear that has been left behind and is not useful anymore, we find ourselves with a record of loss and abandonment. This evocative collection of photographs can make us think that it is not the beauty of the art object but the experiences of the artist that make works of art meaningful. Perhaps a hunger for life includes coming to terms with loss and endings.
