*Rather than aspiring to illustrate a theme, the exhibition has emerged 
out of the artists’ prioritising of and commitment to a framework for 
reflexive dialogue and the active engagement of the viewer with the rich 
complexities and contradictions each encounter proposes.

‘Travelogue’, borrowed from a title of an ongoing project by Charlotte 
Moth, is an apt description of such a journey, the wanderings and 
meanderings experienced on the way. ‘Content’ or allusions in the work – 
e.g. ‘landscape’ as genre or reference point - are not allowed to 
predominate; rather, what is highlighted is the role they play in the 
wider dynamics at stake.

At a time when we are often encouraged to believe that definitions of 
the political and the potential for criticality reside in variations of 
co-opting global and local scenarios or the earnest embracing of the 
hitherto ‘peripheral’, it is even more urgent to revisit and remind 
ourselves of the politics and pleasures that can be found in art’s more 
integral push and pull.

*Anna Barham*’s work utilizes geometry and anagrams as structures that 
”are inherently incomplete or flexible, allowing or demanding an 
imaginative interaction with them.” She characterizes her practice as an 
investigation into “how making can be the physical manifestation of a 
thought process”, articulated from a variety of parameters, starting 
points and materials. Each work celebrates potential and mutability 
through the suggestion of permutations and possibilities.
Recent solo exhibitions include a solo presentation with Four Gallery at 
‘ART 2007’, Dublin; ‘Trod Silver Bog Again’, Irish Museum of Modern Art, 
Dublin, 2005 (solo show following a residency at IMMA). Recent group 
shows include ‘On Your Marks’, Houldsworth, London; ‘Walls in Three 
Places’, White Nave, Dover, Kent, 2008; ‘Like Leaves’, Tanya Bonakdar 
Gallery, New York, 2007; ‘Lost Tongues Rediscovered’, Stroom, The Hague, 
2007; ‘etc’/, /Amagerfælledvej Art Project, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2007. 
Forthcoming shows include ‘About 100 Experiments’, Birr Castle Pavilion, 
Birr, co. Offaly, Ireland, 2008.

*Susan Collins* is Reader in Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art 
and is one of the UK’s leading artists working with digital media. This 
presentation of ‘Harewood’, a live, pixel-by-pixel webcam feed from the 
Capability Brown landscape of Harewood House, Leeds, is accompanied by a 
series of digital prints, each image made up of pixels collected over 
21.33 hours. The lure of the picturesque idyll is simultaneously 
inscribed and disrupted by digital technology.
Recent projects include ‘Fenlandia’/ /and ‘Glenlandia’ - live year-long 
internet transmissions from remote landscapes and ‘The Spectrascope’, an 
ongoing live transmission from a haunted house. Recent group exhibitions 
include ‘Outlook Express(ed’), Oakville Galleries, Ontario, Canada, 
2007; ‘Digital Aesthetic 2’, Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston, 
2007; ‘Webscape’, Vestsjællands Kunstmuseum, Søro, Denmark, 2007; ‘Video 
Vortex’, Montevideo/The Netherlands Media Art Institute, Amsterdam, 
2007; ‘Multiplicities’ ARC Projects, Sofia, Bulgaria, 2007. Forthcoming 
projects include a solo show at De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea, in 
collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella, 2009.

*Nadine Feinson* is interested in painting’s “ability to create 
illusion, to convince, to seduce and yet be formless, indistinct matter, 
dead but not dead..…What is this relationship between the thing and the 
illusion, the tension between actual and virtual?” she asks.
Feinson is currently undertaking an* *M.Phil in Painting at the Royal 
College of Art, London, after completing an* *MA Fine Art at Goldsmiths 
College, London. Recent and forthcoming group exhibitions include ‘The 
Future Can Wait 08’, Old Truman Brewery, London, October 2008; ‘New 
London School’, Mark Moore Gallery, Santa Monica, LA, 2008; ‘Shadowy’, 
Standpoint Gallery, London, 2008; ‘Avatar of Sacred Discontent’, touring 
exhibition, 9 Hillgate Street, London, 2007;* ‘*Salon 2007: New British 
Painting and Works on Paper', 319 Portobello Road, London.

*Joan Key* explores painting’s insistence on the sum of its parts whilst 
also suggesting the possibility of meaning. Her collaborations with 
musicians and performers explore the idea of the paintings extending 
into other modes of presentation, such as the interpretation of marks as 
musical scores. The conscious choice of orange as the protagonist in her 
latest series of paintings stages tensions between its intense demand 
for attention, its matter-of-factness and faux atmospherics, to great 
effect. “Once there was an orange mark on the canvas, it had to be taken 
into account. So much so that the spectator experiences an on/off 
engagement as the mind wearies of its saturation and strong optical 
effects, only to be intrigued again.”
Recent exhibitions/projects include ‘Walls in Three Places’, White Nave, 
Dover, Kent, 2008; ‘On Instructions from Marcel Duchamp’, graphic score 
performed by Apartment House, Soundwaves Festival, Brighton; ‘Still/s 
Compositions 1-6’, graphic score in collaboration with composer Richard 
Ensley, St Ann and St Agnes Church, City of London, 2008.
Charlotte Moth* began taking photographs of architectural spaces and 
locations around ten years ago, an ongoing archive that she has named 
‘Travelogue’. Presented without contextualising details and in a variety 
of formats as well as parts of bigger installations, the images act as 
triggers for the imagination, echoing the impetus that led to their 
original creation.
Currently on a residency at IMMA, Dublin, Moth has also recently 
completed residencies at The Pavillon, Palais de Tokyo, Paris and Cite 
International des Arts, Cultures France. Forthcoming exhibitions include 
'Hermes und der Pfau', Dorten Haus, Stuttgart, (solo), November 2008; 
'LA Works', LACE, Los Angeles / Stroom, The Hague (group). Recent group 
exhibitions include 'Object, the Deniable Success Of Operations', 
Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam; 'Pavillon 7', Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
