Exposure 3: Human drama and documentary
Middlesex University, Department of photography
ICA cinema 1
1 ­ 4pm Wednesday 25th November 2015

 

Exposure 3 is an event which forms part of an ongoing
series of curated presentations of work by staff and students from Middlesex University photography department and guest contemporary photographers.

Taking the theme Human drama and documentary Professor Richard Billingham will share extracts from two films about his family. The first Fishtank (1998) was made using home made family films which will be contrasted to Ray (2015) in which Billingham has used actors to play his parents to enact
scripted scenarios. The films are about pain, addiction, loneliness and control laced with unsettling humour.

Alongside this we have invited the renowned visual artist Melanie Manchot, whose projects explore notions of individual and collective identities, to show extracts from her recent multi channel video installation Twelve (2015). The work explores intimate stories, rituals, repetitions and ruptures of lives spent in addiction and recovery.

The artists will talk about their work, approaches and methodologies before a question and answer session with Camilla Brown, Micheal Bradley and Phil Healey.

In the second part of the event three MA students will present on their work. Sarah Davies work De Bowen House provides a portrait of people living with challenging mental health issues. Anna Emilia Becker will showcase her series A theory of intimacy taken whilst travelling around Russia, Germany
and the UK. Asef Ali Mohammad, currently exhibiting his photography series The Hazara in Quetta in London Photomonth, will show an extract of his film Besieged in Quetta, Pakistan.

Followed by refreshments and an opportunity to talk to the artists and photographers.
