Mother, Mother is the retracing and reconstruction of Dyfed-Powys Police 1983 operation Seal Bay. Operation Seal Bay is the true story of one of the largest and most complex drug smuggling conspiracies seen in Britain. Building a cavern out of fibreglass under an inaccessible cove in North Pembrokeshire the smugglers hoped to move cannabis into the UK. The head of the ring was Danish film star Soeren Berg-Arnback. Mother, Mother incorporates and references cinematic lighting, forensic photography, and late photography. Mother, Mother presents itself as a crime story through a complex mix of photographs, text, and objects forcing the viewer to navigate moments ranging from the vapid to the substantial, and to decipher clues as if at a real crime scene.
