Bearing little resemblance to a realistic documentary or reconstruction, Four Thames Walks carries itself more as an exhibition of extractions. A series of optical/audible, concrete/anecdotal artifacts, gathered at four locations along the River Thames and performed as an alternating sequence of image or sound alone.

The work can be seen to follow a polyptych scheme - a fragmented, but thematically reciprocal collection of discrete parts. These parts are offered without a specific order, diffusing any sense of a teleological direction. This increases the capacity for each to be appreciated independently, as well as of a greater, episodic structure.

Holcombe is of an artist genre that seeks to film 'perfect' rolls of film in camera, following a structure that determines the sequential outcome of each section of image. Where Asnan captures his source material using both conventional and expanded recording techniques, re-presenting these with a range of minimal compositional agitations. Both artists engage with their subjects via a highly considered and sensitive approach, thus in collaboration, the meeting of disciplines is treated with equal respect and attention.
