Brighton Photo Fringe 1-30 October
The Canteen, Kings House, Hove, BN3 2LS
Thursday-Sunday each week from 12am-6pm (Thurs-Fri) 11am-7pm (Sat-Sun)
All invited –
Join us for the exhibition preview on 1 October from 5-7 pm to see new work by Alison Stolwood, Chloe Lelliott and Alison Bettles as part of Brighton Photo Fringe 2016.
Bettles, Lelliott and Stolwood have all experimented with the constructed image within photography. Bettles constructs ephemeral installations in her work ‘Ceremony’ to explore ideas of theatricality and sculpture. In ‘Returned’ Lelliott overlaps different forms of photography to build a narrative linked to memory and materiality. In the series ‘Nature Studies’ Stolwood creates montage images of plants studying elements from our ecosystems illustrating notions of change and time. All these works use an element of the found and familiar with the photographers working in their local environment to produce works which quietly question photography as medium.

Yew Tree ©AlisonStolwood,2015
Alleged to be as much as 4,000 years old by various sources, this tree is as famous for its age as it is for the wooden door that has been built into the tree. It is not known exactly when the door was attached to the tree, other than some time after 1820; this was the date when villagers hollowed out the bole of the tree.
In the process of hollowing out the tree they discovered a cannonball, which may have inadvertently embedded itself in the tree after being fired by an errant cannon during the English Civil War. The farm opposite the church was a staunch Royalist position and as such may have been a target for Cromwell’s troops.
Suffice to say that the yew is not involved in such drama these days and is happily growing into its ancient years.
