About'Where the latent image lives', features work from five artists, Jo Guile, Francesca Centioni, Ash Tailor, Luuk Schroder and Rosie Chamberlin. It is the first Test-Bed exhibition organised by Camden Arts Centre in partnership with Kingsgate Workshops Trust.
This exhibition is concerned with how we experience our environment and, as a result, how we perceive and develop our understanding of that environment. This idea has been, and continues to be, debated by artists.
It has led the artists contributing to this exhibition to visually explore the shift between experience and comprehension. The artists use photography as a tool, playing with an expanded approach to the role of photography by breaking down light, sound and colour in different ways in relation to their environment.
With this in mind, the five contributing artists have created works that explore the boundaries of perception through memory and experience, and the moment where a visual intensity makes one change from viewing to experiencing.
The interplay between environment, perception and experience in the form of fleeting images, encounters, found thoughts in the flux of everyday life, is explored in the context of Kingsgate gallery/community space.
