FIX Artist's Walk/Talk/Panel Discussion
Tue 16 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
Join us for a personal tour with FIX artists Richard Bram, Brittain Bright, Mischa Haller, Robert D Phillips and Einar Sira speaking about their work before a panel discussion and Q&A on the 4th floor of the Bargehouse. Please arrive with your ticket on the ground floor – the Sambrooks Brewery pop-up bar will be open if you wish to buy refreshments beforehand. Please arrive with time to spare.
American street photographer Richard Bram will be discussing his work and signing copies of his latest book ‘New York’ displayed at FIX after the panel discussion.
Brittain Bright’s new work is a continuation of her interest in the suspended photographic moment, as well as a foray into the artistic heritage of the landscape. The alchemy of traditional photographic technologies is, as always, an inspiration: the images in the series are all one of a kind, captured directly onto the transparency film with a 5x4 view camera. Both in content and technique, these photographs recall an idealised past while remaining firmly contemporary.
Swiss artist Mischa Haller’s recent series ‘Zone 3’ refers to the third London zone on the tube map where many choose to reside. Contemporary suburban life is revealed through the way we play - before, during and after.
British artist Robert D Phillips images of the ‘California Desert’ were taken in Southern California over the 2017 New Year holiday period. Traces of human presence going back 6,000 years in these areas, yet often remain unchanged. The landscape he depicts ‘seems too vast, too inhospitable to be affected by our politics.’ He insists however that these are not political photographs. His engagement with the landscape has resulted in beautiful images which communicate how the desert feels.
Norwegian artist Einar Sira despite working in isolation, is well known in his local area as a collector of dead things. Sira works mainly using natural light, his garden pond serves as his studio, sitting for hours at a time waiting for the right mood and atmospheric texture. His work connects him to the passing of time and his humanity and vulnerability. Water is a metaphor for the river of time that runs through the underworld, but also for the beauty, truth and finality of life.
