Aurelia Carbone:
Honest Magic

An exploration of photographic enchantment
in the age of digital imagery

A presentation of research artefacts created in response to the question ‘Does digital photography have the same capacity for enchantment as its analogue predecessors?’

This research examines the potential of photographic enchantment through the production and circulation of creative artworks in analogue and digital photographic mediums, involving both the artist as photographer and the audience as photographer. The exhibition includes an optical illusion installation; Aurelia hopes you will feel inspired to create your own enchanted photographs inside it.

Yusuf Hayat: Curries, Kurtas and Burqas 
Friday 4 March - Friday 1 April 2022

The articulation of newly imagined forms of public engagement can be a critical component in re-making worlds and the physical and perceptual borders that uphold them.

In Curries, Kurtas and Burqas Yusuf Ali Hayat examines (post)migrant narratives through an artistic practice of emplacement. This installation-focussed inquiry considers encounters with art as invitations towards mutual understandings that encourage new intimacies to emerge, ones that have the potential to engender familiarity and friendship.

Gretchen Gordon: Calaveras (2015-2020)
FRIDAY 6 MAY - FRIDAY 27 MAY 2022

Gretchen Gordon is a multidisciplinary artist who explores social and cultural relationships and the embodied experience of peripatetic global travel.

Gordon’s practice folds the dynamism of her shifting immediate environment ­- from cities to remote settings, politically engaged street art and chance encounters - into a study of devotion and mortality through life and death rituals focusing specifically on two cultural sites: the Day of the Dead rituals in Los Angeles (California, USA) and Mexico City (District Federal, Mexico).

Across two sites—SASA Gallery and Liverpool St Gallery—Calaveras comprises of large-scale wall-based photographs, texts, maps, and street altar work in a layered meditation on geographies, ecologies and spirituality.

The resulting works elaborate on ritualised cultural expressions of commemoration and celebration and ways they connect us to people and place.
