Sarah Dobai’s Principles & Deceptions at Filet Filet from 13 May

Sarah Dobai’s Principles & Deceptions is a new exhibition on show at Filet Filet from 13 May.

Principles & Deceptions features recent photographs by Sarah Dobai. The selected images portray commercial vitrines as pictures of the material desire and illusionism that figure both on the streets of contemporary London and Paris and in Gogol’s St Petersburg. Gogol’s novella The Overcoat, recently re-published with new works by Sarah Dobai, provides the starting point for this exhibition.

The Overcoat was published by Four Corners Books as the 10th in its Artist Familiar Series.  http://www.fourcornersbooks.co.uk/

About ‘STUDIO’ Sarah Dobai’s edition for The Multiple Store

Sarah Dobai works across photography, film and video. Images of people predominate in her work but there is another aspect of her photography in which the subject matter shifts to unpeopled places. The three studies in this edition, collectively titled “Studio”, picture inanimate objects suggesting a metaphorical human presence.

Still-life was a departure for Sarah Dobai that began with Study, an image of an empty chair in her studio. The images in Studio are still-lives that cross the traditional boundaries of the genre with an approach that relates more to portraiture.

Studio reflects Dobai’s interest in the history of still-life in documentary photography, particularly in Walker Evans’ documentation of the Depression in 1930’s America and in the work of Wols the Surrealist painter and photographer.

Sigune Hamann‘s ‘Mayday’ solo exhibition opens at RAUMX, Kentish Town from the 3rd to the 12th of July presenting new photographic work that Haman shot on May 1st at Trafalgar Square in London. Hamann focuses on the moment when a common goal directs crowds in common movement and assertion. Film-strip (London 1.5.2015) is part of her ongoing series film-strips, which captures trajectories of bodies and lights in motion in panoramic images. A whole roll of 35 mm film is exposed in an analogue photographic camera in one continuous rewinding movement while moving (walking or turning) herself. Click here for the full press release.

A.R. Hopwood has just produced a limited edition print, False Memory Archive: Damage caused to the walls of The Freud Museum London by previous art exhibitions (Emin Neon). This work is taken from a series of site-specific images made at The Freud Museum London for the artist’s recent national touring exhibition the False Memory Archive. The work is a photograph of damage caused to the walls of the Freud Museum by the hanging of a neon text work made by Tracey Emin for a previous exhibition at the museum.

Based upon scientific research that demonstrates how susceptible we are to false memories, The False Memory Archive evocatively reflected on the way we creatively reconstruct our sense of the past, while providing insight into the often humorous, obscure and uncomfortable things people have misremembered.

 

Eric Great-RexIslands, a series of ceramic tiles, play with the idea of metaphorical islands and the enigmatic territory of emotions and feelings. The islands of Anger and Regret are the possible unspoken or unrecognised areas within masculinity that we might find difficult to visit. The islands of Luck and Desire are the islands we all might want to land and spend time on.
