This exhibition celebrates the photographs of Keith Arnatt, whose artistic achievements have for too long been overlooked. Focusing on work from 1972 ' 2002 it includes both well known and forgotten pieces.
In the late 60s and early 70s, Arnatt used photography to capture his otherwise ephemeral conceptual work. A typically tongue-in-cheek work of this time, Trouser-Word Piece (1972), shows Arnatt wearing a placard stating 'I'm a Real Artist'. Shortly after this, Arnatt decided to concentrate solely on photography. Created
with a knowing, subversive humour this work
transcends easy categorisation. The straightforward portraits of The Visitors (1974 ' 76) hint at his interest in the history of portrait photography, while playing on the relation between the camera and its subject.
