Tom Lovelace photography exhibition at Flowers Gallery
Photofusion member Tom Lovelace is showcasing a selection of his latest photography in an exhibition titled This Way Up at Flowers Gallery on Kingsland Road, London.
Marking a progression from his most recent series, the In Preparation photographs, in which Lovelace documented his attempts to tame and extend a collection of makeshift plinths, This Way Up presents a collection of work which manifests through a cross-referencing of image, object and the artist’s intervention.
The raw, often found, materials that Lovelace draws our attention to are practical apparatus found in both the home and on the construction site. In This Way Up, these are reconsidered and reconfigured as photographic objects, creating conditions which disrupt both their original identity and application.
Tom Lovelace lives and works in London. He has received a number of bursaries and awards, including in 2012 Lovelace was awarded an Anna Mahler Residency in Spoleto, Italy, where in continues to research the history of the photogram and the concept of the readymade. Most recently, he took residence in Aarhus, Denmark as part of the forthcoming European Capital of Culture Programme with a related exhibition and book for 2017. His book ‘Work Starts Here’ is currently held in the Tate Artists’ Books Collection.
The photographs in this exhibition were printed in the Photofusion Darkrooms by our Darkroom manager and professional printer, Nick Jones.
The exhibition is open until 16 May 2015
