NOTE - Michael H. Shamberg, passed away in Baltimore, USA on the 1st November 2014. This Exhibition is dedicated to him.

Born in New York in 1952, Michael Shamberg worked at the US head-office for Factory Records, where he formed a working relationship with New Order, who he met in New York in the early 1980s. Shamberg went on to produce a large number of music videos for New Order, including Run (Napoli), Turn, and Everything's Gone Green.

'In Lebanon, at the border with Israel, there is a turtle sanctuary that is the result of being a protected area during the civil war. The almost extinct Mediterranean sea turtle was allowed to flourish. This is something good that came out of the war. I have gone through my own corporeal civil war and TURTLE is my sanctuary and celebration.' Michael Shamberg
