Monday 17 October 2016 – Tuesday 25 October 2016

A series of large-scale and visually impactful photographic works will be on show throughout public grounds in the city of Exeter, curated in response to the fortification of Exeter’s Roman wall in the 13th century. Tracing its history, the wall surrounded institutions of central power houses; government, religion and military. The construction of ten towers were built to protect and observe the city, bringing forth tensions of boundaries and their role in defining the city and more widely how we deal with place. The city wall itself was constructed in response to the geology of the land, in particular the strategic placing of five gates reflecting the movement of the river.
