Cian Quayle’s project traces the significance of journeys, exile cultures and altered relationships with place, which take their cue from the life and writing of acclaimed author Malcolm Lowry.
Lowry was born in New Brighton in 1909. New photographic artworks present a reconfiguration of place and sites significant for Lowry’s writing in Liverpool, Vancouver and the Isle of Man.
In 2013 Cian Quayle curated two consecutive exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Space Chester (CASC), which formed part of the ‘Parallel Programme’ for Look 13 Liverpool International Photography Festival: Tom Wood – the DPA Work.
This led Wood to invite Quayle to co-edit and design a book, which has developed into a three volume publication of the same title by Steidl co-published with the University of Chester. Quayle was funded by Research and Knowledge Transfer funding in 2015 – 2017.
The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum is open Wednesday-Sunday 10am-5pm
