Photographer Simon Roberts has spent the last three years travelling the coastline of Britain photographing the last remaining pleasure piers. One work from the project, Eastbourne Pier, is on display at Towner. Pierdom is a national touring exhibition and monograph, to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the construction of Ryde Pier in the Isle of Wight (the first of the British piers).

Inspired by Chiharu Shiota’s exhibition in the Exhibition Gallery, this display drew on works in the collection that explore themes of space and architecture. Many of the pieces contain elements of surprise or subversion within them, or explore the way in which people try to control and simplify natural and physical environments. The display included Ceal Floyer’s Door, 1995, Derek Boshier’s Vista City, 1964, and Test of Courage, 2000 by Rut Blees Luxemburg.
