‘Adapt and Adjust’ is a presentation of mixed techniques and projects developed throughout the Photography MA at Brighton University.
The show will take place for one week, Tuesday 14th September through Sunday 19th September 2021 at the Regency Town House close to the seafront in Brighton with the express purpose of providing a space for the members of the collective to present physical realisations of the projects they have been working on since 2019.
Book a ticket to our Private View events, held on two concurrent evenings, Thursday 16th and Friday 17th September for a chance to meet the four artists involved over a (free) drink at the historical Brighton arts venue The Regency Town House.
More about the show
Adapt and Adjust is a show born out of necessity (just as the collective itself was). With ongoing restrictions in place at the university the members have completed their MA without any opportunities to exhibit physical manifestations of their work to the public, in place of a ‘final show’ this small collective have prepared finished examples of the analogue photography projects that they have been working on.
The title of this show has come to reflect the notions of literal and figurative compromise and transformation that form the base line of all these works. After almost two years of consistently reshaping their practice, the DDW have reconciled with the fact their work carries strong visual representations of physical and emotional acts of contortion, balance and reformation. The phrase Adapt and Adjust has been reappropriated here by the DDW not only in order to reclaim and highlight how unusual the completion of their Masters course has been, but to specifically focus on their supportive development and research methods .
DDW want to produce work which is not only faithful to their desires, but work that is also developed and distilled into subtle and interesting visual experiences for the viewer. The show Adapt and Adjust takes what started out as four seemingly disparate artistic practices and aims to show how through a passion for each others work, that visual cohesion between the members is possible. Over the course of the last eighteen months there have been many threads that the artists have been able to draw between each others work, be that through common modes of artistic production, through shared interests or recurring themes.
