'in solution' Solo Exhibition

David Barnes (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Emerging from the economic and social fallout of the decline of the region’s heavy industries, communities in south Wales are re-defining themselves for a new future.

in solution is a series of evolving and interconnected 'strands' that explore the active processes and changing ideas of culture in contemporary society and the tensions between a local experience of place and an increasingly global world.

The work considers delicate and unseen particularities of community life, ranging from often overlooked processes of environmental change or rural development, to the various subtle systems that can be seen to affect 'lived' experience and inter-generational change. in solution also questions the complex histories and ideologies that can be seen to impact on our lives and the way in which ideas and systems might become more or less dominant with the passing of time.
