Event description
Roaming Near the Fireplace – A book project from James Whiting and Cam Norris

About this event

Roaming Near The Fire place entwines images found inside a single stack of publications on the shelf of a home library whilst on residency in upstate New York with photographs from James Whiting’s archive, as well as images created in response to both pools of pre-exisiting visuals. Dark humour, tenderness and a pseudo-technicality are woven together alongside a text from the artist, which acts as both a foreword and a continuing supplement to the visual.

What transpires is a broken poem, forming its backbone through the combination of slant rhymes, realised in a visual rather than textual form, with a sustained reference to the process of searching; trying to find, eventually finding, not finding.

Roaming Near The Fireplace is a collaborative project from photographer James Whiting and designer Cam Norris. Please join both of them at Spacebound on the 24th of June to spill a few drinks and celebrate the launch of this long-term work.
