Stephen Gill – Best Before End
Gill’s most recent series Best Before End was created with the aid of energy drinks which resulted in fantastical, abstract and vividly coloured works that through their intensity reflect contemporary, hectic urban life. First, he placed objects in the camera before taking the photographs, as he had done in the previous series. The negatives were later immersed in the energy drinks, which made the images shift their positions, disruptions to appear and softened the film emulsion. This made it possible to manipulate the emulsion – to stretch it, move it, tear it and to separate the various layers of the film, which were then reworked with a soft brush.
Until the 14th of July 2013
