This exhibition features Katie Breckon, Mizuho Nishioka, and Virginia Woods-Jack: three photographers whose work addresses the relationship between photography, place, and memory.
Katie Breckon’s ongoing series Set this House in Order sees her meticulously document specific objects from her family home, creating an innately personal photographic archive. Her life-sized images trace the skin of these objects – mapping the marks and scratches upon their surfaces – hinting at intimate histories.
Mizuho Nishioka’s practice considers the photograph as a complex system of transactions – the image as a visual manifestation of information – and prompts us to question what happens to the image, and our understanding of it, when we remove or alter particular aspects of that information.
Virginia Woods-Jack presents photographs which document personal moments, images that evoke our often fleeting experiences of places and people. Woods-Jack addresses the medium of photography; printed onto transparent silk, her photographs emphasising the temporality and fragility of the image.
