In Unrecounted Moreton re-examines the work of the artist Kurt Schwitters, philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein and writer W.G Sebald, each of whom made major breakthroughs in their field. Moreton's visual practice imaginatively reinvents the way major thinkers have studied nature, incorporating native landscapes to express their complex thinking and personalities. In this exhibition Moreton's work on these three significant thinkers are brought together for the first time. His beautiful photographic re-evocations come about through his practice of walking in the footsteps of the thinkers and imagining each of their relationships to the original landscapes of Suffolk (Sebald), Norway (Wittgenstein) and the Lake District (Schwitters). Unrecounted is the first solo exhibition in Solent Showcase. To celebrate this exhibition, a publication with a newly commissioned essay by the acclaimed and award winning British writer,literary critic and Fellow of Emmanuel College Cambridge, Robert Macfarlane will be published and be available from the gallery.
