RICHARD BILLINGHAM: ORDER OUT OF CHAOS

RICHARD BILLINGHAM: ORDER OUT OF CHAOS

Details

Richard Billingham’s refreshingly direct pictures of family life stunned the artworld when first exhibited in the 1990s. We re-visit these iconic photographs, now shown alongside videos from the same era.

Caught on out-of-date film loaded into a cheap instamatic camera, these photographs were originally intended as studies for Billingham’s art school paintings. Once they had been exhibited, Billingham stopped photographing his family – the impulse could never be the same. Instead, he made videos and in 1998 brought us ‘Fishtank’. Screened on TV, the Billinghams were channeled directly into our sitting rooms. Alongside other short films in the show we find ourselves once again being forced to consider our own strengths and vulnerabilities alongside those of Ray, Liz and Jason. All of a sudden, we are all too aware of what it is to be human.
