Four artists investigate the relationship between time and land by exploring alternative approaches to the photographic process.
The fix is the last stage of the creative process, after all conceptual and practical decisions have been made; photographic and photochemical. It acts as a statement of artistic intent, committing decisions to perpetuity. This finale of a complex chemical process allows for images, as observed by Roland Barthes, to “settle like a fine rain” upon their paper or celluloid base.
For the first exhibition in their permanent gallery space, South Kiosk invites four artists to investigate the relationship between time and land by exploring alternative approaches to the photographic process as well as incorporating experimental darkroom techniques into their practice. The works that make up this exhibition will offer us an insight into landscapes that extends beyond the limitations of the traditional photograph as a tool for documentation.
Joachim Sefzick’s panoramic images offer the viewer an ordinarily impossible perspective on a familiar landscape that is often fleeting. Whilst retaining this sensation of motion, they can examine individual points in time, within the same image. Subverting the definitive nature of the fix, Ryan L. Moule’s work takes on a more ephemeral state, one that escapes the apparent permanence of documentary photography by focusing on the temporalities produced by still and moving image technologies. His subjects often reflect the temporal instability of his chemically unfixed works, such as rooms in homes that are on the verge of collapse between the sea and the land.
However, Agnieszka Kozlowska’s approach explores the status of a photograph as a physical trace rather than purely an image. Whilst her work shows photography as a natural phenomenon that takes place essentially independently of human intervention, Gareth Owen Lloyd embraces the alchemical history of photography to create out of time apparatus that combine networked digital screens, enlarger parts and photographic paper. For ‘Fix’ he will build a surveying tool that will expose a realtime-feed from the solar and heliospheric observatory onto light sensitive paper.
