CUE at ArtsLav

On Friday last I had the privilege of attending and photographing an exhibition organised and curated by fellow students from Wimbledon College of Art, Katarina Rankovic and Tahmina Ahkmedov, co-curated by Kosha Hussain. CUE, held at ArtsLav in Kennington, south London, is an exhibition of painting, installation, video and mixed media work. Housed in a Victorian ex-lavatory, ArtsLav was an unusual choice of venue but worked amazingly well; with work hanging off toilet cubical doors and behind cubical doors and on the walls. The atmosphere was decidedly 1920s with Reinhardt jazz music and candles dotting the narrow rectangular space.

The rest of my photographs from the private view can be found by clicking on the photograph.

The work is on show now until the 6th of June at ArtsLav, 180 Kennington Lane, London, SE11 4UZ.

 

 

Monday post series #5: photoshoots I’ve loved

On first glance, these look like mixed media rather than photo manipulations. The viewer looks first at the shape of the face and then at the face itself, which is slightly disconcerting, as we want the face to look like a face and it doesn’t. These photos are not immediately recognizable as self-portraits and I think this is what adds to their appeal.

What do you think of over manipulated photographs? Do you think this is too much manipulation?
