Material Light 2017 at the Kochi Biennale (Srishti Outpost)
MATERIAL LIGHT – 15.03.17 – 24.03.17
AT SRISHTI OUTPOST – A COLLATERAL PROJECT OF THE KOCHI MUZIRIS BIENNALE
MILL HALL COMPOUND, MATTANCHERY, KOCHI, KERALA, INDIA
Rather than causing the death of analogue photography, the dominance of digital media has recently increased interest in analogue and historical processes amongst image makers and artists.
MATERIAL LIGHT explores the fallout from the collision of these two worlds through the work of a wide range of artists for whom the photographic image, either digital or analogue, is the main point of departure.
The exhibition includes installations, prints, film and video by 15 artists from the UK, India, and elsewhere. MATERIAL LIGHT has previously been shown in London and Belgrade and includes work from the host countries of previous exhibitions. Please see the Material Light website for full details of current and previous contributors.

This exhibition seeks to explore the scope and scale of visual intrusion in our everyday lives through photographic and mixed media work from emerging artists.
We live in a society that has a CCTV camera on every street corner and a camera-phone in every pocket. Yet intrusion can be as overt as unwanted snapshots […]
