Scope and content
Installation photographs of the group exhibition Inside Bankside which was held at the South London Gallery from 17 July to 25 August 1996. It included works by Dennis Creffield, Anthony Eyton, Deanna Petherbridge, Terry Smith, Thomas Struth, Catherine Yass. These artists were among those invited during 1995 by the Tate Gallery to go into the power station at Bankside that was about to become what is now the Tate Gallery of Modern Art and make some kind of record of its vast inferior before the contractors moved in. Roughly the artists fell into two groups: those for whom drawing is an essential and fundamental root of making art, and those for whom this is not so and whose preference is to use the camera rather than the pencil. While all the work refers to the interior of the building the two categories of drawing and photography establish a thought-provoking dynamic and the exhibition examines the way in which drawing has been affected by photography and vice versa and how both media relate to architecture.
