Dark Adaptation: Part 1
Ryan L. Moule and Ciaran Og Arnold

South Kiosk and Seen Fifteen are pleased to present Dark Adaptation, a collaborative project bringing together the work of artists Ciaran Og Arnold and Ryan L. Moule. Taking its title from the process by which our eyes adjust from sunlight to darkness, the exhibition will explore darkness in both subject and experience.

About Dark Adaptation: Part 1

Ryan L. Moule’s series Divisible Remainder considers the collapse of the photographic medium. In an age dominated by digital systems that are seemingly able to guarantee permanence, Moule challenges this facility by reinstating the importance of disappearance and forgetting. His collection of light damaged and unfixed photographs slowly erode as the images are reclaimed by the excess silver halide. As a consequence of his intentional omission of the final stage of the printing process, Moule forces the viewer into a losing battle against light and time. The original exposure progressively decays, eventually existing only as memory devoid of any visible trace.

Ciaran Og Arnold is an Irish photographer who makes work at night. In images taken over the course of several years in recession-hit Ireland, he depicts a shadowy cinematic world of dark alleyways, bars and nightclubs. In 2015 Arnold won the Mack First Book Award with the publication I went to the worst of bars hoping to get killed, but all I could do was to get drunk again. For this exhibition the artist will present a selection of works from the book, alongside recent photographs made in 2016. Blurring the lines between fact and fiction, a new nocturnal narrative has been created for Dark Adaptation where the viewer is invited to take centre-stage as the protagonist.

Dark Adaptation is an exhibition in two parts, opening in successive weeks. Part 1 will open in the South Kiosk and Seen Fifteen gallery space in the Bussey Building on Wednesday 11th of May. Part 2, an immersive installation as part of Peckham 24, will preview in the Copeland Gallery on Tuesday 17th May.
