Epicentres, 2014 by Michael Day

 

Epicentres is a book containing a collection of computer-generated images that indicate the position of earthquakes in remote locations. Tremors that are low on the Richter scale might only be sensed by seismological recording equipment rather than be felt by humans. These images have been automatically generated from sensor data, and exist as automated representations of geological events that may never have been subjectively experienced.

In dialogue with Gwen John : Cette Petite Lettre Performance, 2024

Anna Falcini

In dialogue with Gwen John : Cette Petite Lettre Performance, 2024 by Anna Falcini

 

Cette Petite Lettre recreates a letter of 1909-12 by Gwen John to her lover, Auguste Rodin that threw light upon her feelings during their intimate relationship. In the letter, Gwen John makes reference to a sculpture called Whistler’s Muse, by Rodin that she was modelling for and she expresses her frustration that he did not meet her in person but instead sent his Secretary. She describes how this action had turned her heart to ice.

This series evolves my theatre photographs. Frontal views of darkened spaces: spaces designed to offer comfort in the shadows and soft lighting. The darkness creates a restricted palette of colours. I like the visual connections between the theatres and these photos. Like the mouldings from the theatres have become wallpapers here. These visual cues and codes of the space suggest what takes place, the absent embodied action. The slightly unfamiliar layouts and the particular furniture choices are suggestive. I want the viewer to wonder: what happens here? The images convey closeness and intimacy. The stage in the title is right there, but it’s implied. So the viewer must imagine what the photos only hint at, rather than literalise.
