Imprint of Space

03 Nov 2016 to 08 Nov 2016
This exhibition explores the different ways in which marks are made and captured by photography.  Aspects of urban life are represented and created through the process of imprinting, generating new contexts and building up layers of meaning and materiality over time. The urban landscape bears traces of human experiences and practices, just as our lives are shaped through interactions with the city.
Twelve visual urbanists examine conflicting and intertwining narratives to investigate elements of spatiality and inhabitation through photography. These projects navigate the past, present, and future to question the ways in which we situate ourselves in relation to the systems that represent our physical, social, and cultural surroundings.
About the Artists:
This group of photographers represents a diverse range of practices and interests. With backgrounds ranging from fine art and commercial photography to human rights and lighting design, their photographs address a wide variety of issues. The work they produce utilises different approaches to make sociological enquiries into how they situate themselves within urban space and place, exploring ideas surrounding locality, migration, materiality, identity and transition in the urban domain.
As an international group, each photographer’s perspective is informed by his or her own culture and experience. Every viewpoint is distinctive, but as a group their differences are united by a common desire to explore and navigate an ever-shifting urban world through photography and words
