Exhibition: Cliff Crawford - Waveworn

02/03/2018  |  6 p.m.  |  Location: South East

Martyrs Gallery, Lewes, East Sussex


For fifteen years Cliff Crawford has observed, recorded, and compared the post tops belonging to the 121 numbered groynes of Bexhill beach, East Sussex – producing over 18000 photographs. Each post top is uniquely identifiable – like portraits of a person repeated throughout their lives – fascinating, beautiful, and providing clues as to the condition of the system.

This photographic collection records change over an extended period of time and celebrates the tenacity of a structure that stands in the intertidal zone, surviving the natural rhythms of coastal dynamics. Waveworn by constant change. 

CITiZAN have been invited to come and give a short talk at the opening of Waveworn at the Martyr's Gallery, Lewes. Cliff will also be giving a talk on the night. We're delighted to have this opportunity share a platform with him. 

Waveworn will be at Martyrs’ Gallery, Lewes, East Sussex from Saturday 3rd March to Friday 23rd March 2018, Martyrs Gallery is open 12 noon–5pm (Thu–Sun).
