A collaborative exhibition by Anna Louise Richardson and Abdul-Rahman Abdullah.
Watching embodies the sensation of being approached, watched or singled out by animals, either wild or domestic but not pets, and the emotive resonance of these moments – reflecting ideas of death, fear and preternatural communication with the natural world. Raising a young family in a rural environment the exhibition builds on their shared experiences to articulate a personal lore that voices their relationships with other living creatures. Renewing mythologies about the cyclical processes of life Watching embraces both the magical thinking of childhood and the pragmatism of living in close proximity to nature.
