Description

This beautiful, haunting, thought-provoking fusion of poetry and photography offers us layers of society, the self, the subconscious and Britishness from a Black perspective. It has been on show in Pitts’ hometown of Sheffield at the Graves Gallery, and at the Stills Gallery in Edinburgh. The Ampersand/Photoworks Fellowship is a collaboration between The Ampersand Foundation and Photoworks, supported by Arts Council England.

His debut photographic exhibition will place his work alongside that of Vivian Meier and Alec Soth at Foam Amsterdam this September. PLEASE NOTE: Concessionary rates apply to under 21s, full time students, registered unemployed and registered disabled – just show us proof of status. Too often, that is where the history told about Black Britain begins and ends – but Robinson and Pitts continued out of London, following the coast clockwise through Margate to Land’s End, Bristol to Blackpool, Glasgow to John O’Groats and Scarborough to Southend on Sea. He is an alumnus of The Complete Works and was shortlisted for The OCM Bocas Poetry Prize, The Oxford Brookes Poetry Prize and the 2020 Derek Walcott Prize for Poetry, as well as being commended by the Forward Poetry Prize. The exhibition is an important continuation of Pitts’ work to make every day Black experiences visible, creating an ‘alternative archive for the future’.S. Eliot Poetry Prize-winning text, this contains eye/mind-opening ekphrastic pieces which ponder the representation of Blackness in Art; from Turner to Sidibé. Then they continued through Margate, Dover, Brighton, Southampton, Plymouth, Land’s End, Bristol, Cardiff, Liverpool, Blackpool, Belfast, Glasgow, John O’Groats, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Scarborough, Hull, Skegness, Orford Ness and Southend-on-Sea. A free country needs a free press, and the newspapers of our country are under significant financial pressure”.

These objects include a framed model, made by Pitts’ cousin Dean Rogan, titled ‘If Home was a Place: Johny Pitts’ childhood home’.

Their collaboration became Home is Not a Place which has now arrived at The Photographers’ Gallery in Ramillies Street, Oxford Circus. I could go on and on, but the long and short of it is, I believe home can be anywhere, even on the road, on your way to nowhere or to anywhere. Home is the families we are born into, and those we create for ourselves, be they by heart or by blood. Because if it’s disrupting your peace, chances are your intuition might be trying to tell you something.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).
