Sequence of Change

Karin exhibited 4 works from her Bankside Power Station cycle at the Sequence of Change exhibition at the Hastings Arts Forum from 10 – 22 April 2014.

CROSS CURRENTS

The completed image constructed from the multiples of 2 photos of rusting pipes, references  the relationship between the power station and the river water without which no electricity can be generated – hence the title cross currents.   Karin chose the landscape format for the completed image to create a ‘painting’ of the pipes that in themselves seemed like works of art.

Organic

Karin took a photo of some small pipes. She noticed them as she negotiated the precipitous gangways that led deep into the building or up to below roof level. The tiny pipes struck her as a microcosm of this extraordinary world she was moving through: a mysterious dark unknowable forest of pipes of all shapes and sizes that not so very long ago circulated the life-blood of the power station and through the washing-down process had turned mushroom-colour. Using multiples of the single shot allowed her to convey the architectural quality of ‘levels’ (now solid floors in Tate Modern) and something about the quality of this de-commissioned building waiting to be re-born.
