A former civil engineer, artist/film-maker Amanda brings her technical expertise to an exploration of the materials, companies and individuals that make and maintain the roads we all use.
In the exhibition Formation Level Amanda uses experimental documentary techniques to record the processes and hidden narratives of the labour and materials embedded in our roads, including the manufacture of road sweepers.
The exhibition will also comprise material from Amanda’s own archive of her time as a civil engineer, including photographs, diagrams and other ephemera.
Director of Aspex, Joanne Bushnell said:
“We first started working with Amanda on the development of this show when she won our South Central award in 2014. We have valued the opportunity to work closely with her for many years, supporting her ongoing professional development. It’s been great to see other opportunities such as the Photoworks/HOUSE commission come her way, and to see her practice grow from strength to strength.”
