“My Furillen” – by Imani Nayar

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, we have a new exhibition coming up at Furillen: next Tuesday, in fact. This will be a series of sixteen pictures taken of (and at) the sim by Imani Nayar.

I’ve been following Imani’s work for quite a while. If you reach back into her stream, you’ll see a talent for empty landscapes in images like this or this or this. She also has a striking ability to capture people who are, as it were, in the act of intense and silent contemplation: as in the poster for this show, or this, this and this. The atmosphere in these pictures – other worldly, uneasy, temporally displaced – is extraordinary and intense. She’s the perfect Furillen photographer, in other words, and this collection is stunning.

The exhibition will be hosted in the gallery – the old shipyard building – on the NW corner of the sim. I like this building a lot, and it’s nice to see it back where it was when the sim first opened in October 2015. We have held quite a few exhibitions there, and the space and light provide exactly the right backdrop for Imani’s pictures.

See you next Tuesday.
