I apologize for the crudity of this model CANAL is delighted to present the first collaboration by Mollie Anna King and Patrick White.

'I apologize for the crudity of this model' refers to a line from the film Back to the Future. The exhibition is a multi-media work, existing online, in print and as a physical and interactive installation within the gallery.

In the BTTF film trilogy the central character, Marty McFly, repeatedly uses photographs of himself, his relatives and friends to indicate the ripple effect of his time travelling activities. Characters begin to disappear from the photograph, indicating that their future or past existence is threatened by present events.

King and White's installation explores this conceit through the interplay of analogue and digital means, including still and moving photographic image, fabric design, publications, television and the internet. Broadly addressing the nature of images and imaging technology, the still and the film, the virtual and the real, fame and physical deterioration, the installation is threaded together by personal and collective histories, and the unlikely union of Michael J Fox and William Morris.

Mollie Anna King and Patrick White graduated from the masters programme at the Slade School of Fine Art in 2013. King's recent solo exhibitions include TBM at The Black Mariah Gallery, Cork, with group exhibitions
including Continuum of Ceaseless Change at APT, London; and Extract III at G L Strand, Copenhagen. White's recent shows include Wycombe Listening, High Wycombe, the London Analogue Festival and Right Ascension, Wrong Declension, London.
