Two Shores consists of the seldom seen work for tired eyes and the first sight of the Disport.

Dark-pigment painted sheets of found printed material made for viewing in ambient day-light constitute the work for tired eyes, while the Disport are photographic tools recomposed.

Two disparate sets of things have been brought together in two rooms, to see what happens — by the hour, at different angles, in changing light.

The exhibition will be refashioned intermittently over the course of its duration.
