Peter Richards: Paused, March 2004
Paused, an exhibition of new work by internationally acclaimed artist Peter Richards heralds the first project of its kind to be shown at Millennium Court Arts Centre. Paused is the beginning of a series of projects initiated by MCAC to create new work that is site specific to the Craigavon community and the gallery itself.
Working immediately with staff and resources at MCAC, Richards photographed social/civic groups and individuals within the Craigavon community using a pinhole camera to produce ten large scale photographic works. Groups collaborating with Richards on the ‘Paused’ series ranged from members of Craigavon Borough Council, a the local circus school, bingo hall community and youth groups, to a Lough Neagh fisherman.
