The speaker for the next network meeting in Liverpool is Cian Quayle, Programme Leader in BA Photography at the University of Chester. His images have a personal significance but are ubiquitous in their anonymity. He will be showing works that were recently installed at the Dagmar de Pooter Gallery in Antwerp in the solo exhibition This Will Kill That (2009). Quayle works with all aspects of the medium of photography including family snapshots, found photographs and photographic postcards. Some have been assembled as part of an ongoing archive Inventory for a Reverse Journey (1998 0ngoing) which relate to the artistâ€™s place of birth. Other work refers to the cinematic landscape of the city in a series of artificially lit interiors, whilst other works investigate those parts of the city which manifest an idea of landscape. All the work is marked by the process of a journey.
In July Quayle organised a conference at the University of Chester entitled The Art of Appropriation & Kurt Schwitters in England at the University of Chester. He also exhibited in This Was Now â€“ The Russell Herron Collection at Sartorial Contemporary Art, London. Currently he is exhibiting photographs, a 16mm film and a postcard work at the Bluecoat, Liverpool as part of the exhibition Under the Volcano, which celebrates the birth of Wirral born novelist Malcolm Lowry. Quayle has also contributed a photo-essay to a publication From the Mersey to the World, which accompanies the exhibition.
He regularly exhibits at the Dagmar de Pooter Gallery in Antwerp.
This meeting offers the opportunity to network with other photographers and meet the Redeye team.
This event is free and open to photographers of all levels.
