A number of these photographs were seen for the first time at NorthArt in 2002. The series Aide Memoire and the other imagery from that period was made when Harvey Benge lived in Paris in 1999 and 2000.
Now, 18 years later, this exhibition presents Benge’s old work in a fresh context, paired in counterpoint against work made by the artist in recent years, some as recently as February 2018. Thus allowing a comparison of contemporary ideas and the executional, formal aspects of the artist’s new work with images made earlier.
