Abstract

Exhibition catalogue
all the things between is a major exhibition of photography and video work showcasing eight cutting-edge emerging and established artists from Europe and North America, each with a compelling and radical approach to photography or video.

all the things between explores the phenomena of photography as an all-encompassing mediator of reality and imagination in our contemporary world. The exhibition presents the antithesis of the ubiquitous imagery of slick consumerism where narratives overlay and homogenize culture and location. Instead, these artists explore experiences of time and location, uncertainty and ambiguity, places visited, places imagined and places remembered, suspending the spectator in the space between.

Our understanding of the world is bound to iconic imagery and photography and video is seen as a tool to record what is newsworthy, grandiose and momentous. all the things between brings together artists who explore the gaps or fissures between such events. Whether it is the objectification of the seemingly mundane or a re-imagining of a time and place seen through improbable circumstances, collectively the artists share a dialogue that gives visual form to questions about our expectation of realism and the reading of imagery in the age of globalization.
