The surface of a photographic print can now be expanded as it fluidly intergrates between both two and three dimensions. Initially in respect to sculpture, photography was the medium used to fundamentally document the art work. Now with the emergence of contemporary photographic practises, it has influenced the medium to manifest relationships with other art forms such as sculpture, video, painting and even performance. Surface Matters is an exhibition looking at how photography can inhabit a perceptible and tactile approach that pushes the photograph or installtion into a sculptural form or object.
The exhibition will also feature a new zine. Photography & is a creative organisation founded by Livia Smith and Phoebe Mead. Their zine publication offer's a dialogue into the ever-expanding field of photography, exploring its employment through different modes of cross-disciplinary art practise.
Free copies will be available throughout the exhibition.
