PHOTOGRAPHS & SLIDESHOWS
9 May – 1 September 2012
Jerwood Visual Arts Project Space
Café 171, Jerwood Space, London

Matthew Johnstone’s exhibition PHOTOGRAPHS & SLIDE SHOWS comprises digital slideshows displayed on two LCD screens and a series of framed digital images. Johnstone’s works explore the way that different technologies, normally used for public display, materially mediate and modify the content that they display.

The LCD screens used in the exhibition serve not only as transmitters of a digital content, but also function as material devices which are constitutive of the artwork itself. Each of the slideshows present a cycle of digitally rendered documentation stills. These cycles display a wide variety of material, including images of sculptures made by the artist, video stills and digital elements, shown in complex configuration with one another. Throughout the duration of each of the slideshows some aspects remain fixed whereas others vary from one image to the next in a seemingly arbitrary fashion.

Jerwood Visual Arts Project Space provides exhibition and development opportunities to emerging artists; offering a small grant to develop new experimental work, which is then exhibited within the unique environment of Café 171 at Jerwood Space, adjacent to the main gallery spaces.

Curated by Sarah Williams, Jerwood Visual Arts Gallery Manager, Jerwood Visual Arts Project Space will present three exhibitions per year alongside the main Jerwood Visual Arts programme.
