This spring, New York artist Zoe Leonard (b. 1961) will transform Gallery 3 at Camden Arts Centre into a ‘camera obscura’.
Daylight will filter in through a lens projecting an image of the world outside onto the floor, walls and ceiling, creating a spatially immersive experience. Alongside this, Gallery 1 will be filled with a new series of photographs depicting the sun together with a sculptural installation of found images in Gallery 2.
Across all the galleries this major exhibition engages three distinct forms of photography – experience, image, object – and in doing so pushes at the boundaries of photography as practice and medium.
