Sabes Sugunasabesan in Transitional Proximities

Anna Laine & Sabes Sugunasabesan

Sabes Sugunasabesan, photographer-poet of the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora, and Anna Laine, artist-anthropologist from Sweden, come together in their continuous investigations across South Asia and Europe. They share the notion of being situated on the border of insider and outsider, differently founded on the one hand in diasporic existence and on the other in extended fieldwork. Sugunasabesan and Laine both use photography as a central tool in their research, of how relations between people and places can be grasped, and of how complex life-worlds can be conveyed in visual and material forms. They aim to engage the viewers in ambiguous shifts between proximity and distance, hopelessness and calls for justice, through a linked focus on the transnational effects of a civil war and of discrimination based on caste.

Runs: 7 June to 13 June 2018
Private view: 8 June 6-8pm 2018
Open: 7 June 6pm, from 8 June 12-6pm

Clare Park in Images That Defined The Age – AOP50

Clare Park

AOP50 celebrates 50 years of the Association of Photographers with a selection of iconic images from some of the world’s most respected photographers gathered together in one place for the first time.

Zelda Cheatle, renowned photography expert, admirably curated this exhibition set in the vast unwieldy marble lobby. It is an honour to have been included, particularly juxtaposed on opposing pillars with David Eustace’s wonderful 1997 portrait of Eve Arnold. Never before have I seen my work printed so big! This self-portrait image (used by author Naomi Wolf for the cover of The Beauty Myth, 1990) is imbued with personal expression of my experiences of training as a classical ballet dancer whilst struggling with anorexia. As a photographer I was able to draw visual parallels between the contemporary sylph and the ascetic medieval saint by using simple objects that alluded to the distorted quest for perfection in our culture.

Runs: 16 April to 1 June
Open: Daily 7am – 8pm (free)
