Contact Print
Description:

Contact Print is a co-curated photographic exhibition which challenges traditional concepts of visual narrative, sequencing and representation. Through the use of analogue photography and kinetic sculpture Julia Romaneix and Todd Johnson encourage viewers to engage in a multi-faceted visual experience. Julia Romaneix's 'Don't Do Honours; It'll Kill Your Dog' is a photographic series that references yet contradicts Gavin Hipkin's 1997-2000 series 'Homely'. Arranged as a panel of images, Romaneix questions Hipkin's ideas of narrative by rejecting the need of a story within a series. Todd Johnson's 'Light is Just a Mirage on the World' is a series of photo-sculptures, that transform according to slight changes in room temperature. At almost imperceptible speeds the backlit panels become obscured and force the viewer to look differently at places and objects we think we know. On a conceptual level, this series embodies a kind of radical photo-documentary that refuses any single narrative, and instead, allows multiple narratives to unfold through the images.
