Open Door: London Alternative Photography Collective
Alternative Photography artist talks
Fri 2 Jun, 19.30
The Return, Lith print and photogram series, Molly Behagg
Obsolete & Discontinued, Hannah Fletcher
Join artists Molly Behagg, Hannah Fletcher, Melanie King and Almudena Romero as they give short talks about their practice.
Molly Behagg uses photography to explore the process of making as a way of inhabiting unfamiliar settings. She is interested in roles that memory and photography play in constructing our experience of the present. Drawing on historical and ephemeral photographic processes as a visual language of trace, she locates her personal response to place within our wider collective knowledge. The material elements of colour, light, and space, form starting points for personal and fictional narratives that create connections between disparate places. Recent exhibitions include: Lumen: School of Light, Obsolete and Discontinued, Schaelpic PhotoKunstBar and Collective Traces Urban Photo Village.
Hannah Fletcher is a London based photographic artist, graduating from London College of Communication, University of the Arts London in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Photography. She works primarily with photographic materials, but also enjoys incorporating other practices and mediums into my work such as bookbinding, paper making, film and sculpture. Her interests lye in working with the environment and organic materials.
Melanie King is multi-disciplinary artist from Manchester and based in London. Studying towards a PhD at the Royal College of Arts, Melanie co-directs Super/Collider, the London Alternative Photography Collective and Lumen Studios.
Almudena Romero is a visual artist working with a wide range of photographic processes from early printing techniques such as cyanotype to new technologies including 3D scanning and printing. In 2017-2015, Almudena has worked with TATE Britain, TATE Exchange- TATE Modern, National Portrait Gallery, Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum (Tokyo), the Fundación Mapfre (Madrid) and the Victoria & Albert Museum to deliver different educational projects (talks, workshops, demonstrations) to promote knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of photographic processes.
