JHG Footprints is a two-month thematic campaign created using John Hansard Gallery’s archive. . . Our Head of Programme, Ros Carter, introduces the project: . “In the summer of 2019, the John Hansard Gallery building at the University of Southampton’s Highfield Campus was ceremoniously picked apart, piece by piece. Some of us visited to pay our respects as the giant machines rumbled and dismantled the building brick by brick. The significance of buildings and the unique stories they tell, is one of life’s great connectors – everyone can relate to the memory of a special building, a home, a location where so much personal time, energy and love has been invested.” .

This March, we are delighted to premiere a new film by Sam Laughlin. Falling wall, rising dust (2020) was especially commissioned to document the final chapter of John Hansard Gallery's former home on @uni_southampton’s Highfield Campus (1979–2018). . An immersive electronic soundtrack composed by musician Joe Deamer (@josi_devil) accompanies the slow motion demolition, intensifying and receding to the movement of the machinery. . The new project follows @samlaughlin90’s previous John Hansard Gallery commission, Constructions, in 2018. Using photographic stills, Laughlin was invited to capture the development of our new space in Guildhall Square. Both works focus on the make-up of a building, questioning the nature of the built environment. . Falling wall, rising dust is now streaming at www.jhg.art — until 30 April 2021. . . #samlaughlin #fallingwallrisingdust #jhglaughlin #joedeamer #jessdadds #soundtrack #newcommission #bwfilm #bwphotography #blackandwhitephotography #highfieldcampus #universityofsouthampton #johnhansardgallery #jhg #demolition #history #building #southampton #exhibition #nowstreaming #film #artistfilm #onlineexhibition #digitalprogramme #ACEsupported . @artsunisouth @uni_southampton @uos_engagement @uni_southampton_wsa @aceagrams @visualartssw @cvan_se @cvanetwork @southamptoncitycouncil @southampton2025 @southamptoncityartgallery @ght_soton @aspacearts @visit_soton @sotonbloggers @solentuniversity @sotonstories @union_soton @solent_showcase_gallery @photoworks_uk @jerwoodarts @townergallery @grain_projects @filmvidumbrella
