Presentation by Kehrer:

"Matt Henry's artistic and academic practices focus on the politics of America during the 1960s and 1970s. The works take the form of fictional narrative scenes staged across set-builds and dressed locations in the UK and USA, where Henry employs his own prop and costume styling, storyboarding, and set design. The use of light and color in Henry's photographs is masterly, the perfection of his protagonists and still lives alluring, yet he maintains an ambiguity that challenges the viewer to address their own imagination in considering the works.

The imagery plays with fragments of American photography, cinema and literature from his chosen period to explore underlying ideological concerns. Henry has an interest in the counterculture of the era and his first monograph, Short Stories, explores the rise of progressive politics against a background of small town conservatism. Here the artist presents us with a series of stories shown through a uniquely utopian/dystopian lens."
