About the work...

Group show with Alex Hardy, Rebecca Harris, Paul R Jones, Mark McGowan (aka The Artist Taxi Driver), James William Murray, Alex Pearl, Kate Pickering, Abbi Torrance, Tumim & Prendergast and Hanae Utamura.

Responding to the exhibition brief of 'art, as a shifter of perceptions,... a terrain which can change how we think about ourselves and the world' Rich settled on the form of a watchtower - drawing on ideas of protection and defense, as well as places of physical and mental control such as prisons and concentration camps.

Rich was provided with a large amount of timbers and boards which he could use under one condition: he could not cut them.
