On 30 September 2017 at 8pm, NeMe invites you to the opening of Phenomenological Lightworks, an exhibition focusing on cameraless photography.
Over the past two decades photographers have witnessed major changes in imaging technologies. Digital cameras, computers & cell phones have allowed all people using these technologies to become ‘photographers.’ In addition, new imaging techniques now used in the sciences and social sciences have allowed both artists and scientists to make visible phenomena never seen before.
By focusing on the modalities of the medium, this exhibition separates itself from the historicities and ontological traditions of genre, pointing to new alternative ways of looking at and studying the processes of image creation. This practice is anchored in photography’s unrealised artistic potential to engage with new debates about ways of presenting, seeing, and interpreting the world.
Participants of the exhibition are Sheila Pinkel (US), Tim Otto Roth (DE), Theopisti Stylianou-Lambert & Omiros Panayides (CY).
Sheila Pinkel also led a series of workshops, the results of which will also be exhibited. The workshop participants are: Maria Andreou, Argyro Christodoulou, Anna Christofini, Nicholas Constantinou, Artemis Evlogimenou, Evdokia Georgiou, Nitsa Hadjigeorgiou, Nicole Ioannidou, Natalie Kalli, Erato Kantouna, Athinoula Karouzi, Vanessa Kirzi, Myrto Makridou, Flora Mavrommati, Christina Olympiou, Yiota Peratikou, Eleni Pericleous Kesta, Liana Polycarpou, Ricci Desui, Elena Sarri Varnava, Elina Theodotou, Marios Theophilides, Gianna Theocharous, Zacharoula Varnava, George G. Vasileiades, Marina Yerali.
