The Wapping Project Bankside is pleased to announce EDITION VI: Film(ic), a group exhibition that explores the overlaps and tensions present in the mediums of film and photography. The exhibition includes film, moving image and photography by Lillian Bassman, Elina Brotherus, Deborah Turbeville and Thomas Zanon-Larcher.
Continuing the EDITION series of group exhibitions, the gallery has selected artists whose practice includes film and moving image or who employ the tropes associated with the cinematic, such as narrative, fiction or the construction of mise en scène in their photographic works.
Also on display will be the notebooks of Thomas Zanon-Larcher that offer us a rare insight into the process that leads to the finished artwork. These books inhabit a space that sits between idea and completed work – an experimental stage where contested ideas have the space to be explored and developed.
The EDITION series of group exhibitions as conceived by Jules Wright allows the gallery to identify specific and interesting tropes within the represented artists’ practices to be foregrounded. The format allows for seemingly disparate artworks to be brought together, specific threads to be pulled from the work and for contrasts and overlaps in the individual practices to be made visible.
