INFORMATION

Look at this stuff isn’t it neat!? is a coming out party that celebrates the queer-fluid materiality of contemporary photographic practice. Considering photography’s material presence – that is its status as a queer-fluid cultural material – this exhibition is a celebration of photography that exceeds the distinct boundaries of historical photographic convention. Photographs that have the ability to speak beyond the capturing of something real and tangible.

 

The photographs in this exhibition are confused, mismatched and eclectic, playfully naïve and flamboyant. Each work neither subscribes nor unsubscribes from the traditional conventions of the photographic medium. They are neither an image nor an object, not just one thing, but many simultaneously and are constantly flowing between states.
