(Image: Charlotte E Padgham, Untitled, 2009, Mixed Media; © Charlotte E Padgham)   Charlotte E Padgham (b. London) The coalescence of art and science through materials and processes, as well as thematically, connects all of my work. Themes of transition, manipulation, ephemerality and 'imperfection' are explored through the analysis and re-appropriation of found objects and matter with a view to creating work that harnesses both control and spontaneity and that has the potential to or the feelin...

Mark Dean at Beaconsfield November 24th, 2010 - February 27th, 2011
Posted 2/7/11

Mark Dean’s exhibition at Beaconsfield consists of a back catalogue of 36 of his videos - Retrospective Jukebox - two large-scale installations, a sound piece and a single video piece, arranged over two floors.  This is a retrospective of the artist’s work half way through his career.Dean has the uncanny knack of getting under your skin. There is something about the way he manipulates the material properties of film footage and music from a variety of sources that enables him to open up psychologic... [more]

Frieze Frame on Barham

6/13/10 Posted 6/13/10

(Excerpt from 'Anna Barham' by Colin Perry posted in Frieze issue 131, May 2010. Found on http://www.annabarham.net/texts/colinperryfrieze.html) Thinking through Anna Barham's language games... The 19th-century proto-surrealist playwright Alfred Jarry once said: 'We shall not have succeeded in demolishing everything unless we demolish even the ruins. But the only way I can see of doing that is to use them to put a lot of fine, well-designed buildings.' The early history of the 20th - century... [more]

Posted 3/23/10

The “surgically precise images” of Sophie Ristelhueber has won her the 2010 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.  In a ceremony on 17 March, film director Terry Gilliam presented her with the £30,000 award at The Photographers’ Gallery.  Hailed for “push[ing] the boundaries of the photographic medium”, her 2009 retrospective exhibition in Paris earned the nomination. The annual European competition, now in its 14th year, draws international entries from contemporary photographers.  Considered one of th... [more]

Posted 3/10/10

For a “leading contemporary” photographic competition deemed “one of the most prominent exhibitions” at this gallery, the experience is decidedly underwhelming.  The nominees may well be worth the £30,000 prize, but the scant offering leaves visitors with little indication why.  With photo-documentaries dominating the line-up, originality has taken a back seat. The series ‘Eleven Blowups’ (‘06) by Sophie Ristelhueber drew interest with its “layers of construction and destruction”, focusing on t... [more]

Sean Snyder, IndexInstitute of Contemporary Arts12 Feb - 19 April 09 MO Berger, The Sawdust Reviewsawdustreview.wordpress.com There is nothing too exciting here, but that does not mean it is not worth checking out. The way the ICA gallery spaces are set up - cinema, café, and bookshop interspersed - they are on two different levels, which maybe makes it difficult to maintain that exclusive focus on the art while walking from the downstairs gallery to the next but which, it turns out, echoes th...

4 From the Sawdust Review:  
by
Sean Snyder at Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) February 12th, 2009 - April 19th, 2009
Posted 3/14/09

In these and in his re-presentations of propaganda films, Snyder is focused on the materiality of information - both how it can be molded to fit one's ends and how it exists not just as ideas and images, but bits of celluloid and silicon. This interrelation of the diverse pieces of the exhibition is what ultimately saves it from being a little too varied and sparse, and eventually allows it to live up to the photojournalism guidelines quoted in "Casio, Seiko, Sheraton, Toyota, Mars": "You should ha...
