Over and Over, Again and Again is the title of an exhibition that was held at Tate St Ives and Tate Britain in 2003/04. It was the title of one of the pieces in the same exhibition and was accompanied by a catalogue with essays by David Brown, (Senior Curator ,Tate) and writer and composer Douglas Young.

Four pieces were shown: There Go I (2004), Over and Over, Again and Again (2004), Things Can Change In a Day (2002), Another Day, Record Of The Simultaneous Rising And Setting Of The Sun On Opposite Ends Of The Globe; South East Australia And Western Azores (2001) and also Winterreise (A Winter's Journey) a filmic response to Schubert's song cycle.

In the installation Over and Over, Again and Again the decomposition and dissection of perception is taken beyond former solutions: three tanks are placed in the exhibition space as individual works, but from one single point of view these three miniature-landscapes actually reveal the impression of one sole image. The sculptural models as well as the spatial void between the works are employed to recreate the impact of an illusionist painting.

As an exhibition the works examine the fine line between reality and fiction, the mythological imaginary and the everyday - the natural and the supernatural, representation and perception.

In the Cornish context, the focus was put on the element of the German Romantic Tradition and a concept of landscape that has become a vehicle for emotional transcendence, philosophical contemplation and cultural identity. In London the same work was put into the context of JMW Turner and explored the interrogation of the cultural phenomenon of Romanticism.
