1. Cast brings together newly commissioned and earlier works to explore the rich dialogues between drawing, photography and video defining Goodwin’s hybrid practice. Often grounded in an experience of the city, Goodwin wrestles with the continually changing nature of our contact with the people around us, both the well known – family and friends – and the anonymous, the strangers we pass on the street. His work marks an intense curiosity, a desire to know, and yet is always alive with ambiguities about what the act of making work might reveal or obscure. Similarly, his work suggests the tensions of a society where fear, suspicion and the ever-present technologies of surveillance increasingly infect the atmosphere of public space, and yet it might also be understood as optimistic, aspiring to forms of empathy and connectedness.

  2. John Duncan’s Bonfires documents a long-standing tradition of bonfire building by Protestant communities in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Duncan’s photographs frame and measure the structures against their various social settings, revealing both a sense of Belfast’s changing urban landscape and the deep divisions that, despite political progress, still affect Northern Ireland long after the ceasefires. Each bonfire has a singular structure, an identity. They are sculptural and architectural oddities with many resonances through history and art, from high-rise flats to military watchtowers and gun emplacements, from the Empire State Building to the Tower of Babel.

  3. An on-demand book documenting the celebrated Auditorium project, co-commissioned by Photoworks, Glyndebourne Opera House and De La Warr Pavilion.

    Artist Sophy Rickett and composer Ed Hughes were each invited to create work in direct response to the architecture of Glyndebourne Opera House.

    Sophy Rickett’s film pays particular attention to the mechanics of staging and lighting, stripping Glyndebourne back to its architectural and theatrical core. Simple, slow and monumental movements transform the building into light and shadow, whilst Ed Hughes' soaring score overlays dimensions of musical space and colour.
