MetadataShow full item record
Photo Book, with accompanying texts by Liz Kent, Sharon Morris and David Bate. 90 pp. (part funded by Arts Council of England). This book featured two completed bodies of work "Grounded" and "Twice" which were the continued development of research which formed the solo exhibition "Gone To Earth" at the John Hansard Gallery in 1994. This exhibition had included a series of my first 'animal landscapes’, pre-computer, where the location and perception of the viewer was tested through photographing the animal as landscape and piercing the surface of the image with light emitting diodes. This work led to "Twice…Once". The title of the book refers both to the process of the double negative technique employed as well as a layering of concepts. It foregrounds two complete major bodies of work "Grounded" and "Twice…Once" made between 1998 and 2002. The construction of the images refers to the relationship between the self and other external and internal, real and imagined. The accompanying texts by David Bate and Sharon Morris respond to the work from the perspective of art/photographic critical theory and psychoanalytical theory-drawing heavily on a Freudian and post-Freudian perspective. The work Twice…Once formed part of the group exhibition About Face shown at The Hayward Gallery London, Musee de L'Elysee Lausanne and Culturgest Lisbon. Other artists in the exhibition included Cindy Sherman, Diane Arbus, Andy Warhol and Loretta Lux. The work was featured in "Face, The New Photographic Portrait" published by Thames and Hudson (2007) ISBN: 978-0-500-54321 and the Hayward Gallery (exhibition catalogue ISBN: 1 85332 2431). The 240 page book was edited by William A Ewing with Nathalie Herschdorfer who selected four photographs from the series Twice…Once. Also published in French and Italian.
