Within this photographic series, I have been working with art handling technicians from the Tate gallery. The technicians are directed to work within the landscape as if they are in a gallery space and are depicted ordering objects that refer to works of early 70's conceptual art e.g. Carl Andre's, "Equivalence VIII", or Robert Smithson's, "Mirror displacements in the Yucatan". Set in the landscape of the sea reaches of the Thames, at the edge of London the photographs are a response to the marginal spaces of urban life. They are an exploration of how we view art both in the context of the landscape and in the gallery space and point to the behind scenes labour that goes into the creation of an art object. The photographs have a dialogue between human intervention in the landscape and notions of institutional critique in an investigation of the nature of artistic creation, the language of photography and how we view recent art history.
