Abigail Reynolds - Mount Fear


19.06 — 03.07.2010 Mount Fear (East London Police Statistics for violent crimes 2002-3) Visualising the frequency and position of crimes in East London, Mount Fear's troubled terrain of peaks and troughs gives massive physical form to hard numerical data. Central to the work is the dramatic contrast between the sedate forms of the cardboard vista and that of the violence that the mountainous forms represent; areas with the highest recorded violent crimes have the highest peaks. Huge swathes of data, including that used in Mount Fear are deployed within the public domain to shape our perception and fear of crime in every day life. Mount Fear could be interpreted as a metaphor for an anxious society fixated on numerical justification and accountability. Recent exhibitions include - Seventeen Gallery London, Voges Gallery Frankfurt, Ceri Hand Liverpool, Villa Arson Nice, Gimpel Fils London, Nettie Horn London, Leicester City Gallery.
