Into View is a new exhibition dedicated to emerging photographers selected by the Photofusion Gallery Committee from the 2013 summer BA and MA degree graduate shows.
The exhibition collectively explores the concepts of space, architecture, alienation and identity through photographic archival found footage, staged domestic settings and video. Each artist is presenting an extended body of work since graduating and the exhibition brings into view some of the directions emerging photographers are currently taking.
4 April – 15 May 2014
Continuing to investigate our relationship to space, Sadaf Chezari’s project Somewhere Else presents an interrogation into the concepts of empty spaces, alienation and identity. This project has evolved from a series made during her BA and consists of a collection of photographs documenting her father going about his daily routine alongside an archive of old family pictures which has led to conflicting feelings of detachment and sentiment towards her origins. The resulting exhibition serves as a record of attempting to make sense of a past, whilst creating a restrained relationship between the images and the viewer through a repetitive use of objects, geometrical patterns and vandalised imagery.
