Sarah Pickering, Muzzle Flash, 2013

We are delighted to announce the opening of Aim & Fire, the first solo exhibition of work by Sarah Pickering in the North East.

'"Aim", "shoot" and "fire"; the language of the gun is shared with that of photography and film. It's not surprising that the camera and gun evolved together. In the 1880s cameras with sequential frames for time and motion studies were made from modified guns with a rotating disc of light sensitive film recording in the place of the bullet that would have frozen motion.'
