Paper Geographies brings together 24 artists who use photography to explore the relationships between materiality and place. The expanded field of photography is represented by works that challenge the medium’s own specificity; including documentary and appropriated imagery, performance and sculpture, moving image, analogue processes, digital and 3D animation. This diversity of practice asks the viewer to consider how the physicality of the photographic image impinges on our sense of place in the world.
Each of the artists in Paper Geographies proposes a critical relationship to place, whether local or global, real or imagined. By foregrounding the performative act of the image - its material agency over its representational qualities - they expose the interplay between image and place. Works address locations from around the world, and themes of globalisation, folklore, home, migration, trade and the Anthropocene are explored. The artists in this publication playfully trespass on the construction site of the image and its ideologies. They use photography to both think about and make place. Their works collectively culminating in an index of our own lost civilization.
