Photographer Talk: John Clang

NEPN is pleased to welcome John Clang to Sunderland to speak about his photographic practice on Wednesday 26 October at 6.30pm at Pop Recs Ltd, 27 Grange Terrace, Sunderland, SR2 7AQ.

The talk will start at 6.30pm prompt and will be followed by drinks and informal conversation until 8.30pm.

The talk is free however booking is requested HERE.

John Clang is an artist working in photography and film. His fascination with time, displacement and existence influences his work. His works examine and raise questions about the world he lives in, providing not pictorial documentation but an intimate mental reflection of one man’s mind.

Clang’s first exhibition, in 1993, was a duo-show at the controversial (now defunct) Singapore art group 5th Passage Artists. He has since participated in numerous solo & group exhibitions at Jendela Gallery, The Substation, 2902 Gallery, National Museum of Singapore, Singapore Art Museum, FOST Gallery (Singapore), Pekin Fine Arts (China), Proud Galleries (UK), Annexe Gallery (Malaysia), Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, KSU Art Museum, Sundaram Tagore Gallery (US), mc2Gallery, Center of Contemporary Culture Strozzina (Italy), DUTAC (UAE).

His work can be found in the permanent collections of Singapore Art Museum and National Museum of Singapore. In 2013, a showcase of over 90 works by Clang was exhibited at the National Museum of Singapore. To date, he is still the first and only photographer to receive the President’s Designer of the Year award, Singapore’s most prestigious design accolade.

He received his Master of Art Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts in partnership with Goldsmiths, University of London. Clang lives and works in New York and Singapore.

From 28 October – 9 December 2016, Clang will be exhibiting at Bonington Gallery, Nottingham in the group show Krísis.

Photographer-led publishing @ NEPN Photo-Book Market

Photographer-led publishing: in conversation with Sarah Amy Fishlock and Adam Geary

@ NEPN Photo-Book Market

Venue: Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art/Level 1     FREE            Saturday 6th December 2014  2.15 – 3.00 pm

 

In conversation with Adam Geary (Aglu books) and Sarah Amy Fishlock (Goose Flesh), this discussion will explore the potential and pitfalls of photographer-led publishing.

Sarah Amy Fishlock is a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art and works mainly in the field of documentary photography. Sarah has a strong interest in the printed publication as a method for disseminating photographic work and has produced two zines, Citizens and A Citizens’ Archive, documenting her time as Artist in Residence at the Citizens Theatre. She is also editor of Glasgow-based photography zine Goose Flesh, which aims to showcase the work of Glasgow-based or -linked photographers in a compact, accessible, affordable form. The fourth volume of Goose Flesh was released in October 2014, and was launched at Landskrona  Fotofestival in Sweden. Sarah also recently collaborated with the Jill Todd Photographic Award to produce a one-off edition of Goose Flesh featuring entrants and winners of this year’s award. http://www.goosefleshzine.com

Adam Geary is a Derby photography graduate of the late 80’s and has exhibited and published widely. He currently combines work in the arts and cultural sector alongside 
his photography interests in Ayrshire, Scotland. He is founder of Aglu books, an independent photographer-led initiative that looks to fill a gap in publishing new photographic work. http://www.aglu.co.uk

Exhibition Preview:
Sigune Hamann – ‘In the name of’
DLI Museum & Durham Art Gallery

Preview: Friday 12 July - 6.00pm
Exhibition open: Saturday 13 July to Sunday 6 October 2013

In the Name Of’ by Sigune Hamann opens with a preview on Friday 12 July at 6.00pm. The exhibition is in response to the showing of the Lindisfarne Gospels at Durham Cathedral and the process of the manuscript’s creation.  The project is commissioned in partnership with NEPN.

‘In the name of’ will encompass work that relates to journeys and transitions and the way we experience and interpret them. The exhibition of photographs and videos will include a 56 metre panoramic photograph taken at a street demonstration and a new series of portraits of pedestrians with the inscription ‘In the name of’ as posters and billboards installed in Durham City.

Sigune Hamann is an artist who deals with still and moving images. In photographs, videos, installations and online environments she explores the effects time and perception have on the construction of mental images. Her projects operate in the space between the still and the moving image: she experiments with images created through movement and explores narrative structures through panoramic film-strips.

 

 

 

NEPN Reading Group: Dean Chapman

Tsunami: Archaeology of a Disaster. The Aftermath of Japan’s 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami.
Join us at Side to meet Dean Chapman and discuss his current exhibition (refreshments and good conversation!) Places are limited, so please book in advance. RSVP: carol.mckay@sunderland.ac.uk

Three months after the earthquake and tsunami catastrophe that hit Japan in March 2011, Dean Chapman traveled down the northeast coast of Honshu, Japan’s main island, photographing devastated communities that he had previously documented in the summer of 1999. This journey was repeated in the autumn of 2011. Then in the autumn of 2012, eighteen months after the disaster, Dean traveled north through the devastated region, again documenting the widespread damage and loss, as well as the slow methodical clean up, and the beginnings of the reconstruction of infrastructure, communities and businesses.  His exhibition Tsunami: Archaeology of a Disaster at Side seeks to examine the representation of catastrophe and loss, and perceptions of ‘the Japanese’ and their unique cultural heritage.

Dean is an award-winning photographer who has worked extensively in Asia for over twenty years, and is the winner of the 1998 European Publishers’ Award for Photography for his documentation of the Karenni insurgency in Burma. Based in Newcastle and represented by Panos Pictures Agency in London, his photographs have been exhibited internationally and widely published. He has photographed in Japan periodically since 1993.

Photographer Talk: Mishka Henner

Mishka Henner, Hoboken from Less Américains

Mishka Henner, Hoboken from Less Américains

Mishka Henner will be delivering a talk about his practice at the Mining Institute on Monday 2 July 2012 at 6.30pm.

Henner’s works have featured in a number of surveys of contemporary artists working with photography in the internet age.  He has been described by some as a modern-day Duchamp for his appropriation of image-rich technologies including Google Earth, Google Street View, YouTube and Taaz, and for his adoption of print-on-demand as a means to bypass traditional publishing models.  He is a signature artist in the travelling exhibition From Here On, a group show representing the new age of photography at Les Rencontres d’Arles in France and currently showing at the Fotomuseum in Antwerp, Belgium.

In 2011, Henner was presented with the Kleine Hans award for six bookworks produced between 2010 and 2011. Winning Mentality was acquired by the Tate Collection of Artists’ Books in 2010 and portfolios of his works have been published in Photoworks, Time Magazine, the New York Times and Photography-Now.  His works have also been reviewed and featured in Source, the British Journal of Photography, the Guardian, De Volkskrant, Liberation and Frieze d/e.  He is a member of the ABC Artists’ Books Cooperative and a co-founder of BlackLab.

Talks are free and refreshments are provided afterwards.  All welcome.

Venue:  The Mining Institute, Neville Hall, Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1SE

BlackLab Commission
NEPN and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival are pleased to announce that Mishka Henner and David Oates (known collectively as BlackLab) have been awarded a funded commission to create a new work for this year’s Festival, which runs 19th – 23rd September 2012.

Responding to a call for proposals issued by NEPN and the Festival back in March, BlackLab were selected from an extremely competitive field of over 100 applications.  All proposals responded to the Festival’s theme for this year, Pictures in Motion, which explores the relationship between the still image and the moving image, which most applications coming from artists working across both photography and film.  More information on this to follow.

NEPN Symposium – 18 May 2012

MIchelle Sank, Untitled from 'The Submerged'

MIchelle Sank, Untitled from ‘The Submerged’

Thank you for joining us for NEPN’s  Third Annual Symposium.  You can find reports from the day from David Campbell here and Gemma Thorpe here.  Audio from the presentations is available HERE

Speakers included:  Pauline Hadaway; Bas Vroege; Michelle Sank; Anthony Luvera; Craig Ames; Ben Jones.

Dan Graham: ‘All artists are alike. They dream of doing something that’s more social, more collaborative and more real than art’. (http://artsconnected.org/collection/107477/dan-graham-beyond?print=true )

Is it possible for photographers to realise such dreams? What are the issues facing socially engaged practitioners today? Such questions seem particularly apt in our highly contested social sphere, marked in the UK by Conservative politics and seemingly intractable financial crisis coupled with savage cuts in public spending. Echoes of the 1980s are all too pervasive, with talk of (yet another) ‘lost generation’, rumour of renewed conflict in the South Atlantic, queues at petrol pumps and disarray among political parties of all persuasions. Much of this is played out across new social media contexts, where the networked photographic and video image has a seemingly new currency.

How might photographers today respond to these and other challenges? Our symposium seeks to explore some of the photographic and artistic strategies developed by current practitioners in varied contexts of social engagement, collaboration and participation.  These strategies will be explored in a series of presentations and dialogues, involving artists, curators and audiences. Among other questions, we will consider the extent to which the ‘social turn’ is paralleled in other visual and artistic practices.  What criteria should we employ to judge the effectiveness and success of socially engaged practices? How do we balance process, participation and shared ownership, alongside more conventional notions of authorship, photographic concept and creativity?  In short, the aesthetic dimensions of socially engaged practice will be a focus of our discussion and presentations, whether confrontational and disturbing or daring to explore strategies of visual pleasure and play.

Socially engaged projects have traditionally had a weak profile within the commercial photographic and art worlds. We will also consider the extent to which this may be shifting, with the renewed emphasis on experimental socially- engaged projects in the public realm on the part of commissioners and festival curators.

Join us for a day of photographic debate, provocation and networking.

Registration is now open.   Fees are just £15 or £7.50 for students and unwaged, this includes lunch and refreshments!

Venue: Mining Institute, Neville Hall, Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1SE.

REGISTER HERE

Following the Symposium we will be heading down to Side Gallery where Damien Wootten will be launching his new publication ‘Northern Refuge’ supported by North East Refugee Service and published by NEPN.
