AurelianAlexander Mourant presents work from the series Aurelian, which explores the interior space of British butterfly houses. These artificial environments are used throughout the work to probe the nature of experience, as an envisioned idea where time is not absolute, but continuously contained and all encompassing. By employing cultural objects and contemporary abstraction, the work holds a dynamic tension - questioning one's spatial sense - stimulated through colour, form and materiality. The work draws from Alexander's four-month sojourn through the heart of Africa. In a sense, each photograph is autobiographical, helping to decode the fabric of space, essentially how 'here' and 'there' is in a perpetual dialogue. The work can be seen as an initial investigation into photography's metaphysical potential.
