A major solo exhibition of Simon Faithfull’s work including film and photography work.

A new film work, Re-enactment for a Future Scenario no.2: Cape Romano, was shot in the water-bound ruins of a futuristic beach house off the coast of Florida. Following two hurricanes, the remaining domes are visible above water but now 50m from the shore, highlighting the continuing shifting of boundaries.

Other works present lone figures in unlikely landscapes; a man striding slowly but purposefully over the seabed, and a silver-suited figure who time and again boards a burning plane, surviving in a landscape consumed by another element, fire.

Faithfull has also curated an international group exhibition, Europe After The Rain, at Newlyn Art Gallery. Inspired by Max Ernst’s 1942 surrealist painting, the exhibition presents dystopian terrains and imagined landscapes to come.

Artist ( Description ): 

Faithfull’s practice has been described as an attempt to understand and explore the planet as a sculptural object – to test its limits and report back from its extremities. Within his work Faithfull often builds teams of scientists, technicians and transmission experts to help him bring back a personal vision from the ends of the world.
