It has to be this way, Matt’s Gallery documentation, 2009

Performance in La Friche, Triangle, Marseille, France 2004.

Madame Kwok is a living fortune teller based in the back of an aquarium selling exotic fish in Port Louis in Mauritius. Seers' mother had consulted Mme Kwok when Seers was a child growing up on the island. Seers visited this fortune teller herself on her return to Mauritius in 2004, whereupon Kwok advised her she had to give up being an artist.

This image shows Seers performing with a two-headed ventriloquist dummy. This dummy has cameras in her mouth but here they are not operational;...

Sailors Bill | 2006

Sailors Bill is a  two headed ventriloquist dummy with cameras in his mouths. Bill is spawned from the story of Logie Baird's dummy Stookie Bill which was used as the subject to demonstrate Baird's first television apparatus in Soho in London. Baird's dummy caught fire in the experiment (c.1923). This sudden doubling of Bill in one of the first TV images was marked with trauma as Bill watched himself burn alive on his first TV appearance. Seers' sculpture Sailors Bill incorporates elements of her own biography into this history of TV...

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...

Tow was an intervention on Camden Lock. Works were also commissioned from Tim Head, Ming Wong, Zoe Brown, Janice Howard, Diana Edmunds and Jaap de Jonge for the event which took place in December 2000. Seers collaborated with architect Adam Ogilvy to make these floating sculptures. This was at a time of severe floods in Britain for which insurance companies were refusing to pay compensation. Many people were left homeless.

Tow was conceived, produced and curated by Richard Milner (Plug Fish).

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...

Candy is an automated dummy: as you approach her her mouth drops open and a camera in her mouth snaps you and then ...snaps shut.

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.

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 hidden world that carries forward an odd truth.

This reduction...
