BPF18 Artist in Residence

Jack Latham

2–28 October

Tue - Sun 10am-Tue - Sun 5pm

The BPF18 Artist in Residence provides time and space for an artist to research and create a new body of work, culminating in an exhibition at Colonnade House in Worthing during Brighton Photo Fringe in October 2018. We are delighted to have Brighton-­based photographer Jack Latham as this year’s selected artist.

For BPF18, Latham takes inspiration from Oscar Wilde’s play The importance of Being Earnest. The play focuses on a young man called Jack Worthing who invents a fictitious brother under the moniker of ‘Ernest’ in an attempt to woo a potential partner. Latham will create a series of images depicting youth culture in Worthing. This work will explore how a new generation have to navigate and reconcile two separate identities in a digital age. Born after the democratisation of the internet, what does it mean to grow up with two versions of yourself, the curated digital self and the ‘real’ self?
