Ever since I started my MA course in 2010, at Wolverhampton University, I have tried to find new ways to do photography, applying interdisciplinary structures to my work and building my projects through sculptural installations. This has led me to branch out and to try and explore relational aesthetics, and the way I could engage visitors in a wider social experience, sometimes of a photographic nature, but sometimes not.
Homage to Anoia
My first piece is “Homage to Anoia” (a playful nod to Terry Pratchett). It consists in a small bathroom cabinet whose drawer is filled with various objects. The aim of the game is to rattle the drawer, then to open it gently to reveal a new configuration. This is, to my mind, a more photographic object (it was certainly designed as such anyway). Please read the rationale here.
The Lady in red
My second work is “The woman in red (three degrees)”, a filing cabinet with hand made labels relating to an alternative view of life’s priorities. You can read the artist statement here.
Lastly, I have built a final piece, made out of a 3×2 meter board, 62 nails, ropes, mountaineering hooks and a sheet of muslin. This was an attempt at showing the photographic process through freezing the moment and keeping an environment in a state of tension, between one moment and the next.
