sounding out space [2]

Ends 24 January 2009

Kathy Graham, a recent graduate from the art college, University of Ulster, uses and works with architectural spaces in her photography.

For 'Portraits' she writes

"A photograph allows for a reconstruction of reality resulting in a portrait of a given space. Through a working process, the space becomes the image which in turn becomes the object. Substituting the true gallery space for its objectified portrait allows the observer to take possession of a quantity of the space. The result of this remaking of the space means the absence in the gallery becomes the presence in the image".

‘sounding out space’ is a series of explorative projects around aspects of space (architectural, emotional, historical, practical…). The 23m² of project space with its public exposure to the street is the object of investigation with a wide range of multidisciplinary approaches; artists, musicians, choreographers, a cat, interior designers, refurbishment people, tenants....
