'After Richmond' an installation of new work by Michael Blackburn, Colin Davis and Geoffrey Mark Matthews


An installation of new work by Michael Blackburn, Colin Davis and Geoffrey Mark Matthews – paintings, texts, video, audio, prints, books – and a film they made together 40 years ago in Richmond, North Yorkshire.

 

In 1979 the Richmond film was a “visual documentary,” but it is now something else. Its physical deterioration has added a new dimension: a disposition toward the mythology of belonging to place. It is no longer “in progress:” it is a seed. Things have moved on and we have moved on. Between us 120 years of ‘after Richmond’ sits like a ball of knotted string waiting to be unravelled. While struggling with our own threads we have found a way to become entangled again.

(Geoff Matthews – May 2019)
