Landscapes Of The (Un)known
19 Aug 2020 - 30 Nov 2020
We are open again, by appointment only, after a successful test week in which we trialled how successfully we could open in line with government rules regarding gatherings in domestic dwelings, still very strict. Please see below.
Through the alchemical processes of the analogue darkroom, Hull based artist Lou Hazelwood brings to BasementArtsProject a series of abstract photographic artworks. Using alternative methods of production and old photographic paper stock these artworks are something akin to rural landscapes.
The artist also has a fascination with the rapidly disappearing structures of the gasometer, and alongside her abstracted landscapes will be a series of images dedicated to these now endangered pieces of industrial architecture.
Hazelwood’s exhibition is an exhortation to the viewer to re-engage with photography as an abstract art form and as documentation of worlds both known and unknown.
