National Sculpture Factory, Albert Road.

This series of pictures focuses on the duality of the docklands; the wharf as a place of daily work and stevedore activity and also as the space between the ocean and the city, a gateway, a mystery, a place for artists. The choice of the NSF as a non-traditional exhibition venue is fundamental to how the work is read and understood; the arrangement of the images within the operating Factory floor forces the viewer to connect to a set relationships between the building and the nearby port while the artwork itself seeks to become an integral part of the fabric of the working space.
