May — July 2011
Stephen Gunning makes work according to the driving theme of the modern city and its potential as a site of anthropological enquiry and the extended meaning of social events, gatherings, and informal (but often socially compelled) movements such as parades, protests, festivals or public celebrations. He is particularly concerned with the themes of placement and presence, “the conventional metaphor of life as a journey” and in this respect is fascinated by the relationship of the particular to the universal, the elevation of the ordinary into something filled with implied importance.
