Matthew’s show, called Building Days, will open at Art Lacuna gallery, London from 30 March to 15 April 2018. The exhibition is supported by the NUA Research Support Fund.

Matthew prepared for the show at The Shoe Factory in Norwich.

“Half of the exhibition space will be given over to a 10.5 metre photographic cyanotype running from floor to ceiling; depicting an embarrassing teenage narrative,” he said.

“Other works reveal anticlimactic quests to revisit sites of historical photographs. The play between seriousness and humour, the insubstantial nature of the architectural folly, are ways of thinking through making in relation to the patriarchal values that have coloured my family history.​”
