Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows (2014) is a major new work by London-based artist Hannah Rickards commissioned by Fogo Island Arts. Grey light is a two-screen projected video installation with eight channels of sound. Structured rhythmically around the pattern of a foghorn sounding, the piece finds its origins in the notion of the foghorn as an auditory marker for non-visibility, or imagelessness.

 

This publication accompanies the exhibition Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows presented at the Fogo Island Gallery from September 24, 2014 to April 12, 2015 and features texts by Melissa Gronlund and Will Holder, a conversation between Rickards and Nicolaus Schafhausen, and striking new photographic imagery drawn from the installation’s physical materials and production process. Like Rickards' work, the publication aims to bridge the distance between visual experience and its expression in language, whether spoken, written or gestural.
