Magali Fowler’s exhibition of recent work alludes to narratives, the twists and turns of which you could only guess at, for there are no scripts available. Presented without the trappings of their storylines, the protagonists are glimpsed upon a journey framed by rural landscapes.
Photographs of aeroplane interiors with off-white windows, blinds and beige seats, obviously not waiting for passengers as its seats are covered with clear plastic; a youth manoeuvring his motorbike within an overgrown fenced compound; a woman by a car, absorbed in reading a map, adds a note of reflection to the surrounding moments of action; a young man in a field studded with purple flowers lit by a low sun; a girl incongruously holding a T-shirt aloft. With the story-lines absent, viewers are left to enjoy the moments along the way for what they are.
Magali Fowler’s photographs were exhibited in 2002 as part of the Cable & Wireless Exhibition Programme, 1992 – 2006.
