Launch of a first ever video installation by photographer, Malcolm Glover. On either side of the gallery, a row of parishioners can be seen repeating the Our Father at a Catholic Mass, one of them at the Church of St Thomas of Canterbury & the English Martyrs in St Leonards-on-Sea, the other in the Irish rural village of Drumkeeran, where Glover's mother was born and bred. It is an oblique, contemplative piece of work about the continuity between generations and about migration and about ritual that has to be seen to be understood.
As a photographer Glover's work has been exhibited widely around the UK. His first show: 'Llyn Peninsula' (1984) was a study of rural life and was toured throughout Wales. A selection of images from this early series will also be exhibited in the gallery during the screening, as a way to explore Malcolm Glovers' themes and sensitivity to his subjects, which has continued through into his video work. Glover has exhibited widely at venues including the National Portrait Gallery, Yale Gallery, Photofusion Gallery, Towner galley and Menier Gallery and his work is held in numerous public collections.
