Crossings. -Watermans Art Centre, Brentford, London 2014.
There is a space, halfway across a river, when the sights and sounds of one side are balanced perfectly by those of the other. One is suspended between the leaving and arriving, the to and the fro. The pull and push of each shore is neutralised and a pedestrian is abandoned by all but his intentions.
Bridges, ferries and tunnels are all means by which we can cross a river. Crossings is an installation by Jonathan McCree and Paul Statham, which uses painting, sound and video, to explore these crossings on the River Thames.
