Saturday 4th November 6pm - 8pm @ Ffoto Newport
We invite you back to the gallery next month for a night of photography, networking, food and drink as we host an exhibition by @charlielockwoodphotography.
My practice is a study of the human condition through an explorative multifaceted process. I use performance
and introspection to investigate psychological complexities that are not visible to the human eye. I work
predominately with photography; however, my ideas have been explored through mixed media and spoken
I propose a solo exhibition of my work titled “Nostos Algos “which is a response to the theme of Nostalgia. The
work consists of photographs, found objects, a spoken word piece and 35mm photographic slides. This
investigative project addresses the unavoidability of this phenomenon juxtaposed with the impossibility of
resolution. The idea was conceived from a site
specific project that prompted childhood memories along the
River Taff. Throughout the practice a methodological pattern developed of restorative behaviour and repetition.
The drive to recreate such memories from the 80s became compulsive and strangely fabricated. This process
became central to the work. I have used sensory influencers such as objects, sound and photography that
connect to childhood memories and represent the yearning to restore an idealized past. Additionally, each
medium touches upon the vast emotive responses that are experienced both personally and universally. The
combination of different mediums connects these experiences in order to extend the transient experience of
the nostalgic and prompt philosophical thought.
Send us a message and we'll get back to you.
