This is some of my work that is exhibited in St. Marys’ church in Hull, as a part of HIP fest.
These four pictures are taken in and around a hundred year old smelt work in a small town by the Hardanger fjord, in Norway. The smelt was very significant in the industrial revolution in the early 1900’s and produced among other calcium carbide and calcium cyanamide derivatives, that was exported to Great Britain, France and Hungary. The smelt went bankrupt in 2002 and have since suffered several fires, destroying most of the buildings around the site.
Beneath is some of the tile prints exhibited in another room in the church tower. The series made of photographs printed with liquid light onto ceramic tiles, is called “Bathroom Stories”, and focuses on the bathrooms function as a sanctuary, the little secret events taking place and the evidence left behind. The series was last exhibited in the Bargehouse, in London in 2014, as a part of the TURF grad show.
