23 July – 9 November 2014
Media Space Gallery
This summer our Media Space gallery will host Joan Fontcuberta's first major UK exhibition featuring six conceptually independent narratives which mix fact with fiction and science with art.
“Photography is a tool to negotiate our idea of reality. Thus it is the responsibility of photographers to not contribute with anaesthetic images but rather to provide images that shake consciousness.”
– Joan Fontcuberta
Winner of the 2013 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography, Fontcuberta uses the storytelling capabilities of photographic imagery to create a reality that is convincing, mischievous and visually compelling.
“The way he pulls the rug out from under our cognitive feet continues to be amusing and philosophically intriguing.”
– The New York Times, on Joan Fontcuberta’s Constellations
You can find out more about the exhibition's narratives - Fauna, Herbarium, Orogenesis, Constellations, Sirens and Karelia - in the image gallery below.
