Abstract: 

Revealers is a collection of artworks that centres on photographic logic and the way that it shapes light into images of the world. Through diverse processes of seeing, making and exposing, the exhibition showcases alternative visions of reality that have been enabled through engagements with light as both subject matter and material. Rooted in the idea of photographic exposure, each work separately examines how light interacts with thresholds, forms impressions, and gives shape to multiple and diverse visual worlds. Rather than considering the transference of light as having any kind of processual resolution, these works are formed under the leitmotif that light is a field and, as such, is constantly active — before, during, and after images are formed.
