After Images

24th May – 14th July 2013
Centre for Contemporary Photography

In After Images’ the shad­ows of a set of sub­jec­tive­ly impor­tant arte­facts’ (a busi­ness card, a phone, a let­ter…) are pre­sent­ed along­side gener­ic objects from the stu­dio, for exam­ple: a bin, some tape, a ruler… Pre­sent­ed at 1:1 scale, the images pro­pose a kind of trans­fer­ence; the object itself may be insignif­i­cant but its sub­jec­tive mean­ing car­ries weight, and its shad­ow leaves a space the view­er fills with their own reading.

Pho­tographed using a spe­cial­ly con­struct­ed set’ to enable the sep­a­ra­tion of an object from its shad­ow, the result­ing image stands alone, sep­a­rat­ed from its object yet inex­tri­ca­bly bound to the realm of sig­ni­fi­ca­tion from which it has been cast.
