About

Hayward Gallery presents a landmark project in the artistic life of Dayanita Singh, one of today's foremost photographers. Dayanita Singh is internationally acclaimed for breaking away from the print-on-the-wall tradition of art photography and creating unique mass-produced artist's books. Used as a raw material, photography is a starting point for Singh, rather than an end in itself. Go Away Closer is the first major UK retrospective of Singh's work, which investigates and challenges the boundaries and practice of photography as an artistic medium. The exhibition brings together Singh's artistic oeuvre from the past decades and her portable 'museums', a major new body of work which has developed from her experiments in book-making. Singh's portable 'museums' are large wooden structures which can be placed and opened in various configurations, each holding 70 to 140 photographs. Within what she has termed a photo-architecture", her images are endlessly displayed, sequenced, edited and archived within the structures.
