Thurs–Fri 12:00–18:30
Sat–Sun 11:00–18:30
Tri-Pod is a collective of four photographic artists who met monthly for a year (2014-15) in Brighton as part of the most recent Tri-Pod project research and development group facilitated by Miranda Gavin. Gillespie’s, Fallen Women (2014-15), uses portraiture, archival photos and ephemera to highlight the severe and judgemental attitudes of church and state agencies toward women who became pregnant outside of marriage in 20th-century Ireland. Saints and Shadows (2015-) by Olmetti is a series of portraits printed onto glass that are inspired by the stained glass windows of saints and martyrs in his local church. Chandler’s, Curating Whispers (2015-), pays homage to a forbidden love through reworking photographs found in her uncle’s suitcase of him and his lifelong partner taken in Italy in the 1960s and 70s. HEAD/LAND (2016) is a series of landscapes by Pye in which she manipulates and rotates the Beachy Head horizon so that the landscape becomes simultaneously compacted and extended.
