SARA BOSCIONI ON YAO YAO DING

      The work of Ding initially focused on the concept of “bullet time” and “media transition” (what is time in photography? how do we perceive it?). She started by taking pictures of different kind of landscapes, trying to achieve this sensation of time being “frozen”; if time is frozen what is the essence […]

VICTORIA BATT ON VICTORIA BATT

The dress was laid down on the concrete floor. This was a follow on from the first installation of a white dress suspended from the ceiling. During […]

Celia Hay on Samantha Harvey

Bits is the continuation of Samantha’s last work, the video Untitled. On the wall, some small prints are scattered as the fractions of a narrative from which some pieces are missing. On a few parts, the paper is torn. The images represent fragments of bodies, a distorted landscape, a raven and, put on the floor, […]

Neale Willis on Andrew Kiddie

Andrew’s piece ‘Untitled’ consisted of a leather sofa on which a duvet, pillow, coat and scarf were placed along with a backpack and flask alongside. In the centre of the sofa, a laptop was positioned showing a video of Andrew’s morning routine – getting up, preparing breakfast, selecting clothes, getting dressed, brushing teeth, collecting things together […]

MARIYA BILYAN on ILAYDA BILGIN

‘What do you see?‘ was written on the framed mirror which was mounted on the wall by Ilayda Bilgin. After she explained her idea concerning the mirror and the question on it, she took a hammer and smashed the mirror and screamed ‘what do you see now?!‘.

VICTORIA BATT ON NEALE WILLIS

      Neale presented a small screen showing images of cats, synced to a curious post modern soundtrack that demanded immediate attention. Placed on a white plinth, the machine had all its cables and inner workings visible around the screen itself. The photographs of cats were sourced from reddit.com, as were the explicit images […]

Lena Heubusch on Will Webster

             Will Webster´s installation ¨whole/hole¨ follows up on his previous window series, exploring the deconstruction of an image. The arising inquiry when contemplating this body of work introduces the question of where this seeming attack on photography and its purpose are coming from. Will´s work encourages the viewer to reassess the preciousness and position of […]

David Jklinkert on Candice

She is trying to convey the image as a safe place, as memory, and as a recollection of memories where is built the idea of duration. In other words, where is built our personal experience of being alive. Candice wanted to express the idea of different kinds of durations: there was cosmic duration, because time […]

ILAYDA BILGIN ON MARIA BILYAN

Firstly, when I saw Maria’s installation, I felt like going back from present to past because it reminds me old times. She tries to show us with an old technic that how to approach duration in her style. During the installation, there was a slide machine in the middle of the room, which makes noises […]
