Thursday 2 and Friday 3 November 2017,
19:00–20:40 followed by drinks
Ambika P3, 35 Marylebone Rd NW1 5LS
Five of the pic.london exhibiting artists – John Hilliard, Darren Harvey-Regan, Eva Stenram, Inès Lion, and Miki Soejima – were invited to come together across two separate nights to talk about their practices and ways of working. We have scheduled the artists whose practices speak to each other in some way to be on the same night. Thus it should create an interesting dialogue between them!
Thursday 2 November
Darren Harvey-Regan, John Hilliard
Darren Harvey-Regan works between image and object, photography and sculpture. His works engage the viewer by questioning the interplay between representation and the referent. He considers the photograph as being something not only to think about, but to think with.
John Hilliard is an English conceptual artist. Hilliard's ongoing body of work addresses the specificity of photography as a medium: its uncertainty as a representational device and its status within the visual arts, especially in relation to painting, cinema and commercial photography.
Friday 3 November
Inès Lion, Miki Soejima, and Eva Stenram
Inès Lion — Narrative is an important aspect of Inès Lion’s practice. She uses both still and moving images to create works that combine photographs with words, video and sound. She is interested in the relationship between text and image and the effect that a voiceover can produce on the spectator.
Miki Soejima’s work addresses the persuasive power of photography and its ability to both channel and unfold constructed narratives which underpin the world we live in. She uses these characteristics of the medium to reflect critically on the way we consume narratives and images, and how they influence our lives.
Eva Stenram's photographic practice brings together analogical archival material and digital manipulation, sifting through past and present artifacts, interacting with and re-interpreting the imagery she encounters. Her work is ultimately about being a viewer, a consumer of images.
