Veronica Bailey’s work, Hours of Devotion, creates a new narrative from the archives of one of the oldest and prestigious banking firms in London, Coutts & Co. The artist examined over a 1000 delicate and valuable books from their archive and photographed a selection of titles, re-interpreting them as Neo-Gothic monuments that bear witness to the politics and culture of the time.

Philippe Braquenier, in Palimpsest, addresses contemporary infrastructures for information safe-keeping and the relationship between natural environments with technological ones, aesthetically inquiring how to safeguard the archives of human knowledge.

Putting the work of these artists together results in an intriguing overview of one of the most pressing issues of our time: data and the storage of data, as well as the role photography plays in archiving and visualising our historical knowledge and information.
