About this Event

THE CUT – FLOAT Bill Jackson exhibition

The Cut Arts Centre in Halesworth and photographer Bill Jackson are opening the building in October for the first - ambitious - exhibition since The Cut closed in March.

 

FLOAT was created during the forced isolation of the Covid-19 lockdown when the issues of being out of control of one’s own daily life and the compulsion to maintain control was, and is, a daily struggle. 

The black and white work is presented as an installation with large scale projected moving images for an extended shared experience, along with 25 small scale, wall mounted, tablets for individual viewing in the iconic Malt Room Gallery.

The Cut held two online exhibitions in lockdown and is delighted to welcome visitors back. With one of the biggest, most respected, exhibition spaces in the region it’s the ideal space for socially distanced viewing.

The exhibition is taking bookings in advance, with 2 hour windows for viewing available from 10am – 4pm. Each window has only 20 people, giving space and time for the viewer to dwell and immerse themselves in the shapes, forms and movement of the cloudscape and consider their own relationship with the here and now.

Bill Jackson explains, ‘FLOAT is a new iteration of my work considering time & space through still, moving images, and soundscapes. My line of vision during the pandemic shifted from eye level to the open skies and the constant movement of clouds. The distant view, towards the horizon and upwards to space, transports us from the close detail of real danger and uncertainty to beauty and a sense of freedom. The physical and emotional connection with the natural world brought a new sense of what it’s like to be a creative individual.’

Please note that masks are mandatory

 

The exhibition runs from Saturday 31 October to Saturday 21st November with sessions from 10am – 4pm. The Cut will be offering drinks during opening hours.
