L A Noble Gallery in partnership with Photofusion, are delighted to announce the forthcoming exhibition  Form & Function with works by Chloe Rosser. 

Subverting the idea of the nude Chloe Rosser’s photographs intrigue, entice, confuse and repel. Rosser’s sculptural figures embrace the surreal whilst retaining an absolute reality. Knowingly unnerving, her models contort themselves into fleshy geological ‘forms’.

Rosser’s work speaks of the human condition and our increasing alienation from our own bodies. In these photographs, what should be intimately familiar is transformed into an unfamiliar sculpture. Photographed in this contorted fashion, the body becomes almost inhuman; it is a mindless mass of flesh, a growth. Although the figures are abstract they still retain many human qualities; foetal like poses, flecks of freckles and the subtle arc of the spine. The forms photographed are a stark contrast to our society’s concept of an ‘ideal body’. While their peculiarity and soft lighting intrigue us, a sense of the cadaver repels us.

The naked body has been a major focus throughout the history of art – with the male gaze dominating the field. Our acceptance of misogynistic and sexualised bodies in art, media and life contort the reality of what it is to be human and comfortable with our own skin. Highly debated and wrapped in controversy, our relationship with the human body is arguably now more complicated and widely discussed than ever before

FIX Photo Festival - An annual celebration of consummate photography in all its forms.


FIX Photo is produced and curated by LANG Director Laura Noble. This free exhibition of photography includes works by an array of domestic and international talent.

FIX Photo celebrates the many facets of the medium in all its guises. Accompanied by pop-ups and a programme of events, there are creative discoveries for everyone.

In this, the second year of the festival, FIX Photo is curated in response to the consequences of the dramatic political shifts of 2016. Exhibiting artists will issue a positive challenge to the social and cultural divisions of the past year through the presentation of work connected by four key themes:

IdentityCommunityUnity & Harmony and Environment.

Displaying work by established artists as well as new talent, FIX Photo is committed to giving emerging artists the opportunity to share their work outside of a traditional gallery context. Hosted over four floors alongside the Thames, this unique display in a building full of character offers an idiosyncratic contrast to a formal white space. Situated within the heart of the cultural centre of London, FIX Photo aims to encourage new audiences to photography as the ultimate democratising medium in the arts. FIX Photo promises a visual treat for audiences and a variety as broad as the medium itself.

FIX Photo will explore these themes through fine art photography, photojournalism, street photography and portraiture and fully embrace the diversity and inclusivity of the medium. Exhibiting the highest standard of work artists will celebrate the scope of talent on the photographic scene. This exhibition will also include the premier viewing of Chris Steele-Perkins current ‘The New Londoners’ project - exploring London’s diversity through family portraits inside people’s homes of almost 200 Nationalities residing in the capital. 

 

Featuring artists from four continents - each with their own unique view of the world, including:

Zaklina Anderson, Susan Barnett, Richard Bram, Brittain Bright, Alicia Bruce, Carlotta Cardana, Mike Crawford, Yvonne De Rosa, Giovanna Del Sarto, Elaine Duigenan, Jessa Fairbrother, Mischa Haller, Sandra Jordan, Grant Legassick, Celine Marchbank, Christian Nilson, Robert D. Phillips, Kuriko Sano, Herb Schmitz, Einar Sira, Chris Steele-Perkins, Kevin Vucic-Shepherd and Minnie Weisz.
