A gallery is planning an exhibition with a difference – where photographers become part of the display by holding up their photos in a temporary ‘sit-in’.
Ahead of the exhibition, next month, Viewfinder Photography Gallery in Greenwich, south-east London urges photographers: ‘Bring something to sit on while you hold your print (any size, framed or unframed) for gallery visitors to see? The object you select to sit on will form part of the visual impact of the event, so think carefully about what you bring.’
Organisers have suggested participants park themselves on a ‘blanket’ or a ‘bench’, for example.
The project will take place alongside an exhibition called Symbiosis, featuring images by photographer Annett Reimer. The pictures show the photographer ‘interacting’ with furnishings.
The ‘Sit-in’ exhibition takes place on 26 July from 3-3.30pm.
The gallery is located at Linear House, Peyton Place, Greenwich, London SE10 8RS.
Full details are due to appear shortly at www.viewfinder.org.uk/events_pg_Photography.html
