Inspired by a recent residency in the former mining town of Lens, Northern France, Time Pressure Decay, an exhibition of photography, text and research coincides with a screening of Sophie Dixon’s latest film ‘La Mort De L’Arbre’ at the Turner Contemporary.

About

Coal is equal to Time Pressure and Decay.

The coal mining industry dominated the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region in northern France until the late 1980’s. The abrupt closure of the industry brought irrevocable change to entire communities, forcing them into a political and social struggle still evident today.

In 2012 the Louvre-Lens, a multi-million euro annex of the Louvre, Paris, was built in the former mining town of Lens. Like the Turner Contemporary, the Louvre-Lens was viewed as a catalyst to help regenerate the region through the arts.  In the first quarter of 2015 Sophie Dixon undertook an artist residency in the town under the cross-Channel ADRT scheme, one of a series of art-based initiatives associated with the Louvre-Lens. 

Time Pressure Decay is based upon a series of books and a central image,  works which expand upon the research and experiences accumulated while making La Mort De L’arbre, a fifteen minute film screening at the Turner Contemporary over the same weekend.  http://www.cratespace.co.uk
