She was a Scholar in Residence in the Art and Social Practice MFA program at Portland State University, Oregon USA 2013-2014. Turnbull’s research interests lie with the ways in which photographers integrate co-productive methodologies into their projects––particularly when authorship structures are revised so people who may have previously been ‘subjects’ of photographic texts become co-creators. She has collaborated with street-based sex workers, elderly people who have suffered from abuse, and children. She writes about her research at Photography Read More...

Josh Wright (b.1993, High Wycombe) and Guillaume Vandame (b. 1991, New York), collectively known as Wright & Vandame, live and work in London. Central to their practice, the artists explore the possibilities of collaboration and audience engagement through lively participatory art, performance, photography, video, sculpture and installation. In particular the artists are especially interested in interrogating questions of authorship and ownership, areas of expertise, and the role of artist. Their practice is often about facilitating social situations whereby participants can have an active role in the outcome of the work – whether in an exercise class or sharing a meal. Read More...

Eva Sajovic is a Slovene born artist photographer, living and working in London. Her focus is on socially engaged, participatory practice working with issues of identity, displacement, be-longing and representation. For Sajovic participatory art is a tool to create platforms from which people can speak for themselves and self-represent. It is a political process since once the personal enters the public domain it becomes political and creates opportunity for art to act as a counter and a challenge to the mainstream narratives. Recent commissions and awards include: Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Whitechapel Gallery, The National Archives, Ffotogallery, Cuming museum, 198 Read More...

D. Wiafe is a London based artist and educator. Wiafe centres his work on the readings that unfold when the public is called to witness the spectacle of British Youth. Concerned with what is lost in the translation of such images and the nuances that go unnoticed, his collaborative projects look for stories written in the imagination of adolescents themselves. “What if the spirit behind the Root’s 1996 “What They Do” could be re-imagined as a manual for reframing our suspicions of criminal affiliation? With the increasing power of photography to incriminate, corroborate or exonerate when it is called as Read More...

Thursday 9 March – Thursday 6 April LAUNCH PARTY Thursday 9 March, 18:30 TALK | DAFNA TALMOR IN CONVERSATION Thursday 30th March, 19:00 More info… Constructed Landscapes is an ongoing project that stems from Talmor’s personal archive of photographs initially shot as mere keepsakes across different locations that include Venezuela, Israel, the US and UK. Produced by collaging medium format colour negatives, the process relies on experimentation, involving several incisions and configurations before a right match is achieved. Transformed through the act of slicing and splicing, the resulting images are staged landscapes, a conflation combining the ‘real’ and the imaginary. Read More...
