William Waterworth - Ein Tir
"Pipeline is pleased to present a solo exhibition by photographer, William Waterworth. Interested in an inherent, abstract beauty and the powerful role photography has in shaping that, Waterworth’s pictures highlight the fundamental nature of how we look at others and what it is to feel seen.
They tell stories of the importance of place and people, ancient landscapes and timeless subjects. Occupying the entire gallery space, his solo exhibition Ein Tir, which translates to ‘Our Land’ in Welsh, chronicles new series and key pivotal works. In the end room of the gallery, a feverish display of collage and writing gives context to Waterworth’s recent body of work. Included is a pilgrimage to Julia Margaret Cameron’s home on the Isle of Wight, the story of Zissou and the flying machine, and the journey a carpenter makes to the Alps inspired by Thomas Mann’s novel ‘The Magic Mountain’ (1924).
These expeditions are brought to life with a range of reference material by contributing artists, including video work by Joel Kerr and costumes designed by Edie Ashley installed on the lower ground floor."
