Our first installation was made before we formed as a company and is now our namesake.
In early 2018 we interviewed a wide range of men in Exeter about their ideas and experiences of mental health. We then teamed up with wet-plate photographer Stephen Raff to produce portraits of the participants. The portraits are displayed with headphones that play looping medleys of excerpts of the conversations we had.
We first exhibited at Roots Foundation Barbershop & Social Space before touring to art spaces and conferences and winning 1st prize for art at PsychArt Conference 2018. Thanks to Roots for first hosting this, it was our first step to Alright Mate?'s journey.
