Solo Interim Exhibition
Due to our inability as a year group to meet in person as a result of the ongoing pandemic, we had to produce our interim exhibitions through digital means this year. We opted to use a website called 'art steps' which has different scenarios and pre made exhibition spaces online for you to utilise and add your work to the walls.
I chose the use of one picture per person I had photographed, creating consistency and some sense of direction, too. Alongside the pictures on my exhibition walls, I had also written a brief artist statement about the work which I included straight in front of you on the back wall as you viewed the space. The 'untitled' title was a space holder as at that point, I hadn't decided on a name for the project. In addition, only 7 of the 8 women I photographed were part of the exhibition as I still had the 8th person to photograph.
Of course the use of virtual exhibitions is useful for the time being, especially for practice with sequencing. However, I fear that this technique of working doesn't give us the true insight into producing a real exhibition in person. We have some disconnect, I feel. On the flipside of this, for the purpose of using the exhibition for educational purposes, we work together in a much more collaborative sense as a group when viewing and feeding back on each other's work. Artsteps did, however, give us as photographers the chance to be more creative with our set ups.
