PREVIEW: Curator-led tour, Saturday 26 October 2019
Our second annual IMAGE exhibition focuses on process-orientated photography and looks at individuality and uniqueness in the photographic medium. As a reaction to what could be described as an over saturation of the digital in contemporary society, a move toward originality and authenticity being increasingly prized elements of the way we make and consume art is prevalent. And many young photographers are combining process and sculptural approaches with the photographic image to create one-off, singular works. Featuring a selection of such pieces curated in collaboration with The Photographer’s Gallery, London that includes artists Alma Haser, Liz Nielsen, Julie Cockburn and Tom Butler – who each make ‘photographic originals’ – these will be contrasted by the limitless editions of seminal Finnish photographer Pentti Sammallahti. Also on show will be a series of new and unique tintype photographs by Tif Hunter whilst Martina Amati’s immersive video installation piece ‘Under’ will be installed as a two-screen video installation in our barn.
