Karen Grainger Re: Landscape

Karen Grainger's latest exhibition Re: Landscape is  currently on show at the Viewfinder Gallery, Greenwich, London

"Re: Landscape presents illusory photographs of English rural scenes and coastlines. Using mirrors when photographing each landscape, Karen Grainger blurs the boundary between the reflected and the real"

As far as exhibitions go, this is a gem. Not only fascinating with regard to the evolution of photography but also a real privilege to see archival prints that are truly beautiful.

Points of View:  Capturing the 19th Century in Photographs @ The British Library, London until Sunday 7th March.

You can also check out their on-line exhibition here which is an edited version, organised under the following themes: Art Beginnings Life New Century Portraits Progress Science Travel.

Indre Serpytyte: A State of Silence


Images by Indre Serptyte

Porfolio:  A State of Silence 

"The Lithuanian papers wrote that it was a "Painful misfortune (a catastrophe)", when the Head of Government Security died.

Albinas Serpytis died in the early hours of the 13th of October 2001, in a "car accident".

No one seemed to know the details, or circumstances, or provide straightforward answers. His death was premeditated and brutal.

All that remains is silence, unknown circumstances. Hidden motivations. A chilling absence.

This was my father. The subject of my indefatigable investigations."

From Tate Modern website:
In conjunction with the PhotoFilm! screening programme, this symposium explores the wider discourse raised by and around photofilms in the contemporary context of photography, film and digital media.

The changing relationships of stillness and movement and the ways in which we conceive and experience time are considered by distinguished speakers including David Campany, Ian Christie, Raymond Bellour, Laura Mulvey and more.

Sprüth Magers London is delighted to present an exhibition of work by the legendary filmmaker and artist Kenneth Anger in his first solo show in London for five years. Making films continuously since the late 1940s and considered a countercultural icon, Kenneth Anger is widely acclaimed as a pioneering and influential force in avant-garde cinema. His groundbreaking body of work has inspired cineastes, filmmakers and artists alike. Many channels of contemporary visual culture, from queer iconography to MTV, similarly owe a debt to his art.
