During high summer daylight hours, Aldeburgh beach goers were invited to lie motionless on light sensitive fabric in order to capture moments of stillness on the beach. This camera-less process utilises shadows to create striking blue and white life-size photogram images of bodies that were reinstalled across the shingle and viewed from the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout, or at ground level. The result is a glimpse, or a suggestion of form; a trace.

Still on the Beach was part of Caroline Wiseman’s Aldeburgh Beach Lookout Gallery’s year-long programme Duchamp 100 Years in which contemporary artists made new work that celebrated Duchamp’s continuing influence on art today.
