17.05 - 17.08.2014
The Further Reading exhibition showcases a cross-section of the output of Clare Strand, a British artist working in photography, video and installation. At the Szołayski House, we will also be able to see completed projects as well as installations showing the methods of her creative work.
Many of Clare Strand’s projects are inspired by photos made for functional usages – in criminal cases, instruction manuals or parascientific visual materials created by Spiritists. These provide her with a starting point for her individual, humorous aesthetic quests. By playing with conventions, Strand also constantly challenges the received wisdom that photography shows the truth.
Clare Strand is a multidisciplinary photographic artist based in Brighton, England. She has exhibited extensively both in England and abroad. Her work is held in major collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Centre Georges Pompidou. Recent publications include Clare Strand Monograph (Steidl, 2009) and Skirts (GOST Books, 2013). Strand is also half of the ideas-based collaborative team MacDonaldStrand, and mum to two little girls. She is represented by Camilla Grimaldi Gallery, London.
