Taking its name from a racing strategy and Bronwen Buckeridge’s 2018 exhibition at Matt’s Gallery, Widowhood is  an extended race report documenting the passage of the pigeons sprinting home from the gallery in London to their lofts scattered around the Kent countryside. In the form of a parallel text, Widowhood tracks the movements of one of the widowed pigeons against the banter of the pigeon men waiting at the lofts for the birds to return. Gathering together images from the marking up and release of the birds on race day, this artist’s book is a poignant exploration of the private act of waiting and a shared narrative of love, loss and longing.
