And all these things I do not mention, 2018
A small 35mm slide projects an image of a pond. The angle of the image and its projection cast down onto the tranquil water but the eye is drawn back towards the material, the slide, which is damaged. Light has burnt the celluloid and melted the image shifting our focus back to the material but, at the same time, beyond the waters surface.
Dreaming of Dead Fish was an exhibition of newly commissioned artworks informed by research at Warrington Museum & Art Gallery. For the exhibition, Leighton-Boyce presented un-accessioned items in the museum collection alongside glass, soot, and slide film and projection.
