About the Event
The London Alternative Photography Collective and Thanet Alternative Photography Collective present Transmutation; an exhibition of works produced using experimental, analogue and alternative photographic processes. An alchemical underpinning of transformation, creation, or combination is central to the show while simultaneously fusing a range of disciplines, including sound, sculpture, technology and performance. Positioning analogue photographic practice as a physical three-dimensional agent.
This transdisciplinary exhibition proposes photography as a dynamic, light-sensitive, explorative medium for navigating our world. Photography is made to remember and to forget. It has incredible dualistic qualities that can ask us to look in another way, look again, or to even look away. As a physical translation of optics, photography’s relationship to being two-dimensional can be framed by the materiality of paper, and by the digital nature of screens. It will always be dualistic. Angular lines and rectangular formats typically harness photographic perceptions, and the networked image continuously repositions photography, in displacing it through time and space. It is important to free ideologies of what makes a photograph and to relax into the potential materiality of what being light-sensitive can be.
