The exhibition Eden 69–89 mixes photographs taken around his home on the Welsh border with physical interventions, proposals and jokes that targeted his own and others’ conceptual interests of the late ’60s and early ’70s. In texts and contextual interventions shown alongside color and black-and-white photographic works of the ’70s and ’80s, there are surprising connections: facileness of analysis exposed, a kind of Beckettian dross associated with that; the totemic, the beautiful; the sharply reductive; the whole thing, the individual, its breakdown in parts.
