100 Exposures: Manuel Vason

Thursday 12 February 2015 to Sunday 22 March 2015, 10:00 to 17:00
Free

An exhibition of original, ten-by-eight inch Polaroids by photographer Manuel Vason.

With: Manuel Vason

The photographs in the exhibition are taken from a larger series that was collected in Vason’s acclaimed book Encounters.

The selection of photographs included in this exhibition have been curated by Emma Møller in response to IBT15 festival's theme The Storm and the concept of art as a powerful force. In Vason’s work, art has the power to bring about change, champion difference and disrupt the norm.

Encounters was Manuel Vason’s first collection of collaborative photographs with nineteen of the most acclaimed and controversial practitioners in Britain during the early 2000s. These were artists who were breaking the rules and provoking debate by exposing the body in all its diversities, difficulties and desires.

“The images in Exposures are intended to be neither performance documentation nor straightforward portraiture but something else altogether: something arguably more attesting and arresting”
– Lois Keidan (Live Art Development Agency)

 

Each collaboration in Encounters was photographed using a maximum of ten sheets of film, during one day of shooting. The use of Polaroid film enabled a transparent approach, an immediate dialogue and a series of discussions. The instant results allowed a practical framework to emerge that has since developed into the more extensively dialogue-based modes of collaboration practices.
