Darren Harvey-Regan – The Erratics

In Darren Harvey-Regan’s eponymous art series, The Erratics, he examines the power of photography to move and alter perceptions by taking large format photographs in the Egyptian desert, capturing chalk monoliths in the most objective manner possible.

Afterward, the artist spend months carefully sculpting and photographing chalk rocks in the studio, instilling the objects with a geometry and line that ultimately conforms them to the photographic surfaces it will ultimately become. The Erratics combines this visual series with a new text work by Harvey-Regan that looks into how the work’s processes and ideas might be further developed through writing.

In this series, the idea of an “erratic,” or a rock that differs from those around it, shows that long-vanished glaciers can carry objects and ideas over massive distances and change them.
