Ex-Pogue’s artwork going on show

Have your say

VISITORS to Yorkshire Sculpture Park, near Wakefield, will have the opportunity to experience an installation by Jem Finer, founding member of The Pogues.

Still is a large-scale projection of 18,000 images taken in a forest by a solar-powered camera and constantly reordered through computer software.

Commissioned by Stour Valley Arts in 2011, Still, captures a year in the Kent woodland showing the ever-changing sequence between dusk and dawn; an ebb and flow of time through which the viewer is as likely to witness the passing of a single day as the turning of a year’s seasons.

Since leaving the band, in 1996, Finer has established a respected multimedia art practice, which draws on his early training as a computer scientist.

Still will open to the public in the calm and atmospheric Yorkshire Sculpture Park Chapel on February 11. Picture: Jonathan Gawthorpe.
