More about the exhibitions/Projects:
Comings and Goings by Casey Orr:
Comings and Goings is a photographic series in three parts. The photographs tell several stories, all of them linked. There is a story of migration – human, plant, and animal – and stories which explore ideas of interconnectedness: the notion that all things are linked, that everything somehow connects with everything else and that all of nature, history, human and animal experience is ultimately linked and resonates from the same source. The three parts of the exhibition also propose the idea that foreign and indigenous are not so far apart, trying to show the links and connections between all living things; our desire to be free, our instinct to nest, to seed, to move and be alive. And from the standpoint of a northern industrial community, Comings and Goings also tells the story of our constantly moving and changing world. All of the photographs are taken in the inner city borough of Armley in Leeds.
Part of ‘Art in Unusual Spaces’, two media spaces within the Merrion Centre are being curated by Leeds based arts organisation Lumen <http://lumen.org.uk>. They have selected contemporary experiment work from leading filmmakers, artists and animators. For more information on the programme see the Lumen website.
