Fieldwork showcases newly created, site-specific works by three artists: Katharine Lazenby, Michael Robertson, and Will Peck.

Utilizing the gallery as a site of experimentation, the artists explore its capacity for creative output through collaborative processes with and within the exhibition space. The works capture acts of inspection, survey, mapping, translation, recombination, and composition. They record and elevate details that are inconspicuous or overlooked, as well as documenting the unforeseeable outputs of autonomous creative activities. Fieldwork invites study and encourages slow looking.

Artist Biographies

Will Peck’s (b.1991, Norwich) artistic practice focuses on the extended use of common technology and artificially intelligent machines. Observing and recording processes or events that are passing beyond the intended functions of the devices used, creating autonomous time-based acts. He explores the potentiality of those non-human acts, seeking to uncover a private and intimate language of a machine. His practice encompasses drawings, scans, prints, and video.

Katharine Lazenby (b.1985, London): Employing photography, collage and site-specific installation, Katharine’s practice explores the visual articulation of collected fragments – using everyday ‘as found’ material and capturing details which are easily overlooked. She is interested in the influence of framing, context and juxtaposition on our reading of images, and assembles carefully composed sequences or compositions which draw on the interplay of visual rhymes and correspondences to guide the eye. The work is designed to ebb and flow like streams of thought, as though an idea or impression is gradually dawning.

Michael Robertson’s (b.1992, Kent) work focuses on our relationship with the nature of events, material objects, and how we engage with our immediate environments. Questioning our human inclination to document and record has also been a running theme in Robertson’s work. Documentation allows us to share information, knowledge and therefore perspectives. By using printing, found materials, scientific processes and time based media, the works attempt to create a feeling of heightened perception, an intimacy with space or bodily self awareness by building a recognition of events outside of our own senses. As materials go through changes in state, these artefacts aim to highlight a sense of “eventness” in which a viewer would question the way they engage with phenomena.
