OPEN18 SOLO Exhibition: Consider Falling

Sarah Howe

29 September–27 October

Wed - Sun 12PM-Wed - Sat 6pm / Sun 4pm

Brighton Photo Fringe is proud to present its keynote exhibition, the OPEN18 SOLO winner, Consider Falling by Sarah Howe, selected from an international open call via LensCulture by a panel of photography professionals

Composed of mediated fragments, a series of moving image exerts merged within an installation, Consider Falling balances on the edge of document and form. Rooted in research surrounding the anxiety disorders Derealisation (the condition wherein a person feels the reality surrounding them is unreal) and Depersonalisation (a feeling of detachment from oneself, or that oneself is unreal) the precarious nature of perception is performed through a series of works that accumulate to create a subtly unsettling experience.

OPEN18 SOLO Exhibition is generously supported by Metro Imaging and Arts Council England.
