Photograph: Pierdom print exhibited at Flowers Gallery, September 2013
To coincide with the 200th anniversary of the construction of Ryde Pier (the first British pleasure pier), I will be exhibiting a series of framed photographic prints between July – September 2014 in venues around the coastline of Britain, creating a simultaneous national exhibition. Each institution will be exhibiting prints from the series, including their local pier.
Venues confirmed so far are:
Aberystwyth Arts Centre
Brighton Museum & Art Gallery
Burgh Hall, Dunoon
Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool
Kirkleatham Museum, Redcar
Quay Arts, Isle of Wight
Southampton City Art Gallery
Teign Heritage Centre, Teignmouth
The Conservatoire Blackheath, London
The Photographers Gallery, London
Towner Gallery, Eastbourne
Turner Contemporary, Margate
Dates for each venue will be released shortly.
The aim of this extended tour is to generate a national conversation to highlight the historical significance of these architectural structures, enforcing the idea of Britain’s pleasure piers as cultural landmarks, tracing history and national identity. There will be an active participatory project running alongside the exhibitions where individuals will be encouraged to share their ‘pier stories’ and photographs.

The tour is being organised in collaboration with Flowers Gallery and supported by Arts Council England.
