Tri-pod launches its second exhibition Inside Out at Photofusion Gallery in Brixton from 9-30 August featuring the work of two visual artists using photography, Anne Vinogradoff and Jocelyn Allen.
Inside Out explores themes around women, self-image and identity through the use of photography, film and object-based works.
Anne Vinogradoff (www.annevinogradoff.com)
Anne presents Women: A Curvy Journey drawing on work from six series created over the past two years. Vinogradoff offers both a personal, autobiographical perspective, as well as a global viewpoint as she explores the trajectory of womankind throughout history. In creating these works, Vinogradoff asks the audience to consider ancient ideologies and their relevance to contemporary society while seeking to challenge commonly-held dogmas relating to female identity. The result is a multilayered, interactive installation of analogue photography realised as 3-D objects.
Jocelyn Allen (www.jocelynallen.co.uk)
Jocelyn?s self portraits from the series Your Mind & Body Is All That You?ve Got are taken from forty sittings over the last six months of 2012. What started out as a few images documenting Allen?s reaction to the changes within the skin of her body evolved to become a highly personal journey of acceptance, self reflection and realisation. The self portraits reveal and chart moments of playfulness and self confidence alongside ones of shyness and self doubt.
Together the works in Inside Out can be seen as a dialogue between Vinogradoff and Allen as well as between the two women and the audience. Visitors to the gallery will be invited to engage with some of the object-based works in ways that allow the audience to become active participants in the show.
Tri-pod has also invited Myka Baum (www.seephotography.net) to show work from her ongoing series, Mrs Haversham?s Pantry. The work is inspired by the cycles of nature and transformation and explores the minutia of growth and decay using a variety of painstaking processes engaging both natural and mechanical reproduction.
