Curatorial exhibition project, presenting different positions about the usage of photography, this exhibition adresses the digital image and its dissociative effect on analogue mediums.

About

This exhibition brings together a group of women artists who are exploring the photographic image. These artists are dealing with concepts that vary from one to the other. Nevertheless the connecting link between them is the interest for establishing relationships with other mediums. Some of them for instance, are incorporating objects within the photographic set-up. Others are constructing scenarios with multiple layers. And the most adventurous explorers are adopting analogue processes in order to bring them alive. This approach is very important when taking into consideration that we are immersing in a world where the explosion and fascination for digital images has generated an immense conglomerate of photographs published indiscriminately on the Internet. Therefore it seems to be wise to have a look at this emerging wave of creators that are working in the field of expanded photography and pushing the barriers of traditional concepts about techniques and mediums.

The Mediators exhibition project aims to display a set of artworks that invites the audience to re-think the role of the photographic image as a provocateur entity while inviting them to play with light, shapes and surfaces alongside the gallery space. This action will be delivered by means of an installation-type layout, which seeks to be less stiff than the strict and conventional white cube.

This exhibition explores experiments done onto photographic imagery on different surfaces and reveals how this process not only corresponds to a technical solution, but is more a consequence of a conceptual echo, that the artists find along their way while researching and working with photographic imagery.
