Review: Lindsay Seers’ Extramission 6 (Black Maria). Author: Michael Newman.

SOLD

On first encounter, the visitor comes upon what looks like a large black, irregularly-shaped building within the gallery. Upon entering, he or she finds a place to sit, and watches a projected video that takes the form of a documentary about the strange life of Lindsay Seers – how she tried to turn herself into a camera by making exposures through her mouth, and how...

The Lost Room | 2003

Lost Room is a series of photographs made for an exhibition in the Museo Del Barro in Ascunción, Paraguay.

Whilst in Paraguay for two months the artist documented the room in which she was staying, recording details which she believed would certainly be erased by time from her memory – quotidian things such as how a table leg met the floor, the profile of a skirting board etc. Somehow there is a sense that we have this detailed, contingent information of rooms we live in inside of us at a latent level but these details can not necessarily be...

Black Bag is a series of works based on the theory of optograms (this is the name given to images that were believed to be etched onto the retina. This idea came from experiments published by scientists Franz Boll and Willy Kühne in 1876/77 which seemed to prove a photograph could be taken by the eye).

"...the retina functioned like the photographic plate of a camera, therefore the final image viewed before death should remain fixed forever like a photo within the dead person’s eyes. It also came to be believed (as a logical extension of this...

Human Camera | 1997

Act of photographing with the mouth, 1997-2005.

This collection of works concentrates on the act of photographing and the photographer (the event) rather than the object of the photograph itself. The works span a number of different themes but principally they reference the mouth camera as a sterile kiss - whereby the kiss becomes a mechanism of capture in which the sensuality and affection associated with an actual kiss is reduced to a ritual whose sole intentions is to take possession (control of a moment - a kiss of death; an image). So the act of photographing itself...

Medium: Cross-processed slide film printed as cibachromes mounted on aluminium.

Some Editions SOLD OUT

If we loosen an idea of a binary relationship between positive and negative as simply being opposites and consider the two states to be a difference in kind rather than degree, then in the negative photograph (the image that is actually imprinted on the historic film in the camera) we are presented with another world not a simple opposite. Often more ghostly and spectral than its non identical twin (the positive), it reveals a...

The title Optogram* is a generic name given to a series of mouth photograph works by the artist which use the original piece of photographic paper that was put into her mouth to capture an image. These human camera images are often exhibited alongside a documentary photograph (shot with a mechanical camera). These accompanying documentary images are taken at the same time at which the mouth photograph was being taken. The mouth photographs are coloured red because they are fogged by light filtering through the blood in the...
