This edition by Jennifer West was produced by Nottingham Contemporary on the occasion of the thematic exhibition Aquatopia, 2013. West processes her work is a very unique way by transforming film negative using unorthodox methods of interference. In this work West obscures the celluloid with grainy brown residue—highlighted by a wash of reddish pink. All profits raised from the sale of this limited-edition work support Nottingham Contemporary’s free programme of exhibitions, educational activities and research programmes.
