And Then There Was
Through The Over Exposed Mind of Ruby
— Curated by Then There Was Us
'And Then There Was' is an ongoing collaboration between SLOE Gallery and 'Then There Was Us', an independent Manchester-based zine exploring visual culture through the medium of photography, illustration and graphic design.
‘Then There Was Us’ curate their second exhibition at SLOE Gallery with 'Through The Eyes Of Ruby', a photographic journal by Owen Godbert & Ste Fletcher, documenting the current underground music scene in Britain.
Their exhibition 'Through the Over Exposed Mind of Ruby' presents a series of photographs taken throughout 2017 and 2018 and printed by Owen and Ste in the darkroom at Stills Gallery, Edinburgh.
«The project summed up so far — DIY, long trips on the Megabus, film processing in the kitchen, sneaking in gigs for free, evacuating venues, being thrown out of festivals, not having a clue what’s going on, pints of wine, The Kinks, avoiding security, beer soaked rolls of film, broken cameras and very hungover dark room days.»
— Arron Hansford
'Synaesthesia' is a solo exhibition by artist Arron Hansford, exploring the boundaries and limitations of photography through installation, print and audio-visual artwork.
Testing the limitations of both the art world and the human mind, Arron explores the boundaries and transitions between two states. Working across various disciplines, the exhibition aims to create a discourse on the possibilities of particular artistic media, whilst simultaneously suggesting what may come next as these boundaries are pushed.
Arron Hansford is a visual and audio artist based in Manchester. Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degree, his research is currently investigating the artistic limitations and collaborative boundaries of photography.
