The Kensington and Chelsea Art Weekend was filled with discussions by renowned photographers talking in intimate groups about their latest projects and what motivated them to pursue certain ideas for their work. Marysa Dowling began Sunday’s discussions with an introduction to her 2007-17 project Blue Bag, which aims to explore how the camera can impact, question, hide and expose identity through representation.
The end of June saw the launch of Phase II of the photographic exhibition, Representation on the Line: (Un)framing our Identities. Whilst Phase I was launched as a satellite event for Photo London in May and featured 24 photographers’ work, filling the basement of the old telephone exchange in Chelsea, Phase II expanded to 90 women, filling the ground floor too.
Screening of one chapter from Lisl Ponger’s epic film, The Master Narrative and Don Durito, followed by a discussion facilitated by Geoff Nicholson. This is the first time that the film has been shown publicly in the UK.
