To kick off the Autumn 2019 Redeye series of events, join us for an in conversation with three talented artists, Edmund Clark, Roxana Allison, and Pablo Allison. Each will be presenting their latest work and discussing the similarities and differences between their approach, style and subject matter.
Here is a bit about the artists and their latest projects:
Operation Jurassic is an eight-year-long collaborative personal photographic essay between sibling photographers Roxana Allison and Pablo Allison, depicting their emotional journey leading up to, during and after Pablo’s imprisonment in the UK for criminal damage offences. Such collaboration culminated in a limited edition self-published book with an introduction by writer and educator Pete Brook. It successfully sold out within three weeks of its launch at the Impressions Gallery Photobook Fair 2018.
The visual account uncovers feelings and records the slow passing of time through legal documentation, paperwork, letters, diaries, drawings and photographs. It offers the viewer an intimate sight into the British legal process whilst quietly raising issues on freedom of expression, graffiti and the criminal justice system.
Edmund Clark is an artist interested in linking history, politics and representation. His research-based work combines a range of references and forms including bookmaking, installations, photography, video, documents, text and found images and material - whatever is conceptually and formally relevant to investigating the subject and communicating with an audience. Recurring themes include developing strategies for reconfiguring how subjects are seen, and engaging with state censorship to explore unseen experiences, spaces and processes of control and incarceration in the ‘Global War on Terror’ and elsewhere.
Who is it for?
Each artist's interest and work spans a fascinating breadth of subject areas. Some of the main things that will be discussed include incarceration, global politics, familial relationships, censorship, documentary photography, graffiti and freedom of expression. This talk is for all, come along to hear where they draw their influences from to create their work.
