Uncommon Ground at Flowers Gallery

July 13, 2012 by Kay

Uncommon Ground Flowers, Kingsland Rd 13 JULY - 1 SEPTEMBER 2012

Uncommon Ground is an exploration of environmental interventions in contemporary photography. Inspired by the work of Keith Arnatt and Gabriel Orozco, this exhibition aims to obscure the intersection between photographs of observed reality and artistically altered reality. Here, environment is taken in its broadest sense: natural ecosystems, urban and suburban space, domestic interiors, industrial landscapes and even political arenas. A selection of represented and invited artists’ work spanning the last decade, across a variety of international locations, will be on view.

Documentarians create visual evidence of human interference with a growing propensity for scale and complexity; they describe complicated phenomena by embedding concepts within their subject matter. Other practioners perform figurative or sculptural interventions by physically inserting themselves and their subjects into an environment. They engage, manipulate, transform, or become transformed by their surroundings and thereby communicate through evidence of their own disruptions. Both approaches have strong historical lineages – the latter partly influenced by a boom in conceptual land art of the 1960’s. Convergence of these strands is becoming intricately intertwined creating new possibilities for photography. The work in this exhibition encourages wanderings across modes of practice, re-considering subjects of photographic documentary as inherently artistic, and the anthropological potential of seemingly irrational artistic interference.

Artists include: PETER AINSWORTH / EDWARD BURTYNSKY / CHRIS ENGMAN / ANDREA GALVANI / ANDY GOLDSWORTHY / SCARLETT HOOFT GRAAFLAND / NADAV KANDER / JASON LARKIN / ALASTAIR LEVY / JAEHYO LEE / TOM LOVELACE / JOHN MACLEAN / ROBERT POLIDORI / SIMON ROBERTS / AARON SCHUMAN / RAVEN SMITH / DAVID SPERO / WASSINKLUNDGREN

Uncommon Ground will be accompanied by a catalogue with text by exhibition curator Chris Littlewood.
