About

FORMAT and QUAD are delighted to announce Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Awards, an exhibition featuring three photographers: Christopher Sims (US), Felix Schoeppner (Germany) & Florence Goupil (Peru) who were selected as part of Feature Shoots’s 6th annual international photography open call by FORMAT Director Louise Fedotov-Clements and FORMAT Coordinator, Niamh Treacy. The exhibition in QUAD’s extra gallery spaces will feature a series of printed photographic works. Curated by Niamh Treacy

Florence Goupil’s project Shipibo-Konibo, The Healing Plants addresses the potential loss of knowledge surrounding the use of the traditional plant-based medicine that the Shipibo-Konibo indigenous people have long used and protected, and the consequence of this, specifically in the wake of COVID-19.  

In Felix Schoeppner’s project Cognition he uses terms from the fields of physics and astronomy, presenting them in simplified models, built with everyday objects and studio equipment to explore the subject of perception and question how humans can extend our biological limits.

Chris Sims’ The Pretend Villages is a 15 year documentation of the inhabitants and structures of imagined, fabricated Iraqi and Afghan villages on the training grounds of U.S. military bases. The project explores the eerily accurate environment which both prepares troops for war and traps those that have fled from it in an uncanny role play.
