COMING UP FOR AIR: STEPHEN GILL – A RETROSPECTIVE
In Autumn 2021 Arnolfini will celebrate over thirty years of extraordinary practice from Bristol-born photographer Stephen Gill, drawing together new previously un-exhibited work, alongside works from other iconic series including Hackney Flowers, Buried, Talking to Ants, Night Procession, Pigeons, Coexistence and Coming up for Air. Also featuring the first UK presentation of images from award winning photographic series and book The Pillar, the exhibition will explore Gill’s rich sense of place, leading us through the flea markets and towpaths of Hackney Wick in London, to his current rural surroundings amidst the Swedish countryside.

Creating numerous distinct bodies of work, Gill – described as a ‘documentarist’, ‘anthropologist’ and ‘dazzling visual poet’ – has built his photographic career upon an ethos of experimentation. Eschewing a signature style in order to adapt both his creative and technical approach to the subject at hand, has led to alchemical ‘experiments’ including photographic burials, floral collage, in-camera photograms and submerging work within a watery world.

NOT THE SAME POET, BUT ALWAYS AN ARTIST
Hazel Hammond has been a poet and an artist for over 40 years. In 2018 she had a stroke and now lives with Aphasia. Learning to use words again is tricky for a poet! Aphasia is a changing condition affecting over 350,000 people in the UK impacting on ability to speak, write and read. Not the Same Poet, But Always an Artist explores the effects of Aphasia on Hazel’s work as she rediscovers her artistic practice through drawings, film making and other artforms.

Drawing and artistic expression have been vital to her recovery. This work tells Hazel’s story visually, and she hopes it will support other people living with Stroke and their families, raising awareness of the vital role that arts can play in recovery.
