This display is part of The Photographers' Gallery recurrent In Focus series. In Focus aims to link the themes addressed in the current exhibitions.

The Movement of an Object links a group of strangers to each other through their relation to a single, banal object ' a blue plastic bag. Marysa Dowling's project shows the movement of an object as it traverses London and is recycled by thirty individuals aged two to seventy-seven.

A publication charting the progress of the bag, produced in collaboration with Luce Choules of foldedsheet, will be available priced £5/£4.50 members from The Photographers' Gallery Bookshop.

The Movement of an Object is part of the off-site projects programme at The Photographers' Gallery. It links, in part, with Keith Arnatt's process-led approach, and to his series Pictures from a Rubbish Tip (1988 - 89).
