Hello,

I went to Photofusion’s Annual Members Photography Show lat night. The show is gaining a reputation for showcasing a diversity of approaches and genres from photographers based in London and further afield. This year continues the collaboration with Hotshoe Magazine which includes the Hotshoe Photofusion Award”.

This is an extract from Questions and Answers part of an exhibition called It’s All About Paradise II

 

In this moving image piece Questions and Answers I examine found objects, placing them in their traditional context and questioning their functions. My interest lies in nostalgia and ownership, exploring the boundaries between found objects and the ‘objective’ subject, subverting their established meaning and detachment. By animating objects that have lost their use or whose design has been replaced and modified by more sophisticated devices, I question the human relation with the past as an object or as the waste as well as interrogating the nostalgia that drives capitalism towards fetishism.

Drawing Space

Drawing Space is an interesting initiative by Brighton artist Carolyn Bew during the Artist Open House. It is a collaborative event over three weekends. Visitors are invited to take part in a collective drawing incorporating sound and video, which will transform this empty space into an interactive environment. Each evening a video will be made of the artworks, before the walls are repainted for the following day.

Hello my friends,

tomorrow evening there will be another session of Armchair Critics, this time Matt Adams from Blast Theory will be joining us to talk about how artists have used the Hertzian space in their work and the political aspect of it’s privatization by mobile phone companies amongst others.

If you would like to know more come along, have a chat and a glass of wine with us!
