The Gallery at Foyles, curated by Futurecity, welcomes its latest exhibition Eating with the Eyes – a showcase of large-scale photographic works by Pentagram partner, graphic designer and human rights activist, Harry Pearce.
The exhibition will bring to life images and ideas from Harry’s latest book, also called Eating with the Eyes, which is a visual mediation of chance events collected from the photographer’s journeys around the world.
Harry says: “I get lost in the process of recording seemingly accidental events. As time has passed, I’ve come to realise that there are no true accidents, only ideas trying to find us. We are surrounded by a constant stream of ideas, insights and visions in every moment and in every place. Abstract and accidental as they may seem, they are to my eyes precise, illuminating and elevating.”
Mark Davy, Founder of Futurecity says: “These are images that reveal hidden ideas and suggestions about everyday places. At a time when Britain is looking across global borders with mixed emotions, Harry’s images take us on a meditative global tour, pausing and reflecting on the special texture of city streets.”
In addition to its celebration of the unexpected, the exhibition gives an insight into Harry’s process as a prolific graphic designer, who has spent three decades working with some of the world’s best-known brands and artists. These include: the Royal Academy of Arts, John Lewis, Phaidon Press, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lloyds of London, Ai Weiwei, Anish Kapoor and the human rights charity WITNESS.
1st December – 5th February 2016, 9am – 9pm daily.
