Peter Ainsworth

Ainsworth worked with gallery professionals in the production of A stuffed bird found on the bank of the Thames at Crayford Ness, asking each to perform within the landscape as if they were in a gallery space, treating detritus as works of art.

This series explores the photograph both as a piece of empirical evidence and as an art object on a gallery wall. The work engages in a dialogue surrounding the nature of human intervention within the landscape and perceptions of art works viewed in a gallery context.

Preview Thu 4 Dec 2008, 6-8pm at Pavilion.

Peter Ainsworth will be in Conversation with Anna Reid, Pavilion Director, at a special event during January. For further details visit the Pavilion website.
