Join artist Lindsay Seers as part of the UWE Fine Art / Art in the City series of lectures.
Lindsay Seers work interrogates narrative and memory and is created from a matrix where there is no formal separation between the conceptual investigation of the act of photography, the camera as apparatus, the common desire for film and photography to act as evidence of events, and the complex historical and personal synchronicities of events themselves. In Seers’ acclaimed film installations the past is constantly reconfigured, as if it contains an infinite virtual potential for different outcomes, which are all already embedded in one another.
Instead of providing a neutral platform for the viewer, Lindsay Seers’ installations place the filmic imagery within architectural and sculptural structures most appropriate to the narrative constructs. These structures are both factual and theatrical, thereby embodying the dual aspect of the evidence and the artefact. The personal and the collective, the factual and the fictional, are all different features of the unfolding of Seer’s spectacle which offer no safe platform of observation.
