Lights, camera and a little action, is a large-scale colour negative, in seven sections, created using a purpose built 10 by 3 by 2 metre pinhole camera constructed of cardboard at Milch, London, as a part of the ‘ashowaboutime’ project. The work is the documentation of a twelve-minute exposure direct onto colour photographic paper, capturing a group of collaborators re-enacting, recycling and re-interpreting images found in publications.
Richards, born Cardiff 1970, based in Belfast since 1994, participated in Northern Irelands first presentation at the Venice Biennale in 2005. Solo projects include exhibitions at: Studio Lipoli & Lopez, Rome; ZDSLU, Ljubljana; Cornerhouse, Manchester; Model Arts and Niland Gallery, Sligo; Golden Thread Gallery; Belfast Exposed and Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast.
