Alongside @townergallery, we are delighted to have co-commissioned @david_blandy_'s new exhibition, The Edge of Forever, now on show at Towner Gallery, Eastbourne until 2 October. The show features two new video works that will premiere at Towner. . The Edge of Forever (2022) centres on two questing children seeking to unravel the mysteries of a damaged world in a landscape loaded with symbolism. Their journey begins at Cuckmere Haven, Sussex, with its cliffs formed from the remains of plankton from 100 million years ago, continues to a Cold War era observatory and concludes with their visions of the cosmos. . In this work, Blandy investigates connections between specific sites, personal histories and geopolitical events to reflect on our place in the world. These ideas are tackled through the lens of his grandfather’s experiences interred in Japanese POW camps during the Second World War in Singapore and Taiwan, merging the personal with larger shared histories. . Soil, Sinew and Bone (2022) is a second new video work that features in the installation. Working with film footage from Screen Archive South East, spanning the 1930s to the 1970s, Blandy charts the protracted revolution from the age of horsepower to the Atomic cold war era. The film reflects on how humanity has now found itself on the brink of environmental collapse. . The Edge of Forever is supported by @aceagrams, @screenarchivese and The Elephant Trust. This project will continue to be developed for a solo exhibition at John Hansard Gallery in 2023. .
