Fringe Division - Bill Lane Solo Exhibition
Fringe Division provides an evocative exploration of the tension between the individual and the corporate as manifested through the built environment. This project applies seemingly discredited photographic strategies to city fringe industrial parks to explore the contrast between corporate logistics sites and their smaller neighbours.
Visiting these urban gyres it is easy to imagine two alternate realities manifesting side by side. In one corporate masters propose a neatly ordered hive world. In the other a richer scruffier reality populated by workshops, bootcamps, dog spas and meth labs.
The transitional dawn/dusk light of these images occupies the same conceptual and emotive space as alternate reality fictions. Generating a spatial disruption sufficient to provoke reflection on the parallels between there and here. In this space an opportunity is created to connect to these places and to consider their relationship to our possible futures.
Fringe Division represents the first chapter of an extended psychogeographic study of industrial estates. It provides a broad outline of some of the dominant themes and motifs of these spaces and therefore lays the groundwork for future chapters to expand upon.
