"This image documents two events, separated in time by 60 or 70 years. In two worlds, two people unknown to one another perform a ritual which reflects upon the frality of memory and the impossibility of grasping a moment in its fullness. There are two lenses involved, one in the camera used some time in the mid 20th century, and the magnifying glass I used in 2017 to burn a hole in the photograph obliterating it's subject. Both lenses collect and focus the light of the sun; the first to memoralise a fleeting event, the second to convert the subject of the image into a negative space into which can be projected an idea of what might have originally been there. In both cases, the mournful recognition of the passing of time, measured out for us in solar cycles, in warm days with those that we love, is paramount." Chris Fortescue's (@haresbreath) work is humorous, confusing and thought provoking. A multidisciplinary artist, he works across #sound , #installation , #animation and #photomedia , often incorporating found images and objects. A recurring enquiry in his work considers how technological developments affect the way we percieve images.
