Past Events and Exhibitions
Our relationship to the image and the way in which information is captured has changed substantially in recent years. The number of images we encounter on a daily basis has continued to rise ever more steeply, there are now over one and a half billion images uploaded every day. We also appear frequently on surveillance images, with the UK reported to have in excess of 6 million CCTV cameras.
The exhibition brings together a group of works which make things slow down or stop. This could be the subject of the work; things coming to a temporary stop to capture an unexpected moment.
‘Untitled (2:10am)’ is a photo-series by Bankley member Andy Broadey that draws together cinematic, architectural and musical references to examine the relationship between time and change within the post-communist condition.
