Kate Beckingham, Emma Hamilton, Therese Keogh and Amanda Williams ObscuredOpening: Wednesday 13 August, 6-8pm Dates: 13-30 August 2014
In ‘Obscured’ Kate Beckingham, Emma Hamilton, Therese Keogh and Amanda Williams investigate the status of the image in contemporary art practice. By bringing together their disparate practices, the artists explore the potentiality of photography through sculptural experimentation and the space that exists between the real and the unreal within the photographic image. By mixing photomedia and sculptural practices, as well as creating a conversational installation, ‘Obscured’ suggests an ‘other place’ where time and space compress and photographic processes expand through a translation of the interstitial. The artists engage in the potential of an expanded photography, exploring concepts of time and space to consider the tensions that arise through a dislocation of history, technology, reality and matter within the idea of the ‘image’.
