[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”35″ display=”basic_slideshow”]Mother, Mother… is the retracing and reconstruction of Dyfed-Powys Police 1983 operation Seal Bay. Seal Bay is the true story of the most complex drug smuggling conspiracy seen in Britain. Building a cavern out of fibreglass under an inaccessible cove in North Pembrokeshire, the smugglers hoped to move cannabis into the UK. Head of the ring was Danish film star Soeren Berg-Arnback. Mother, Mother… incorporates and references cinematic lighting and forensic photography, presenting itself as a crime story through a complex mix of photographs, and objects forcing the viewer to navigate moments ranging from the vapid to the substantial, and to decipher clues as if at a real crime scene.
