Unseen: The Lives of Looking by Dryden Goodwin, The Queen’s House, Greenwich, SE10 9NF. FREE: open daily 10.00 – 17.00, 5 March – 26 July 2015.
New exhibition at The Queen’s House Greenwich, presenting the first feature-length film by acclaimed contemporary artist Dryden Goodwin. Unseen: The Lives of Looking, considers the act of looking, and gives viewers intimate access to observe the working lives of three committed lookers.
Charting a series of close encounters by the artist, the film focuses on three individuals with a compelling relationship to looking; at different scales in different forms and for different reasons. The work of an eye surgeon (Sir Peng Tee Khaw), effecting medical change; a planetary explorer (Professor Sanjeev Gupta), decoding the Martian landscape; and a human rights lawyer (Rosa Curling), challenging governmental actions, are bound together by Goodwin’s exploratory gaze.
Dryden Goodwin’s work explores expanded forms of portraiture, closely observing individuals through drawing and film-making. The exhibition brings together many drawing that Goodwin made during direct observation of the three individuals at work, as well as a selection of the tools and papers of each of their trades.
Dryden Goodwin created ‘Breathe’ in 2012 with Invisible Dust.
