Karin has exhibited her work With Reference to the Tower (Gothic Affinities) at the Hastings Arts Forum Members’ exhibition (Hastings Arts Forum, 36 Marina, St Leonards on Sea, TN38 0BU) from 20 March to 1 April 2018.
WITH REFERENCE TO THE TOWER (GOTHIC AFFINITIES)
Karin sees Tower Bridge as the architectural and benign off-spring of the notorious Tower. From the multiples of a single photograph of one element of the Bridge balustrade through which the Thames is seen (the documentary element) she created an image of a ‘window’ (the imagined) that is – and is not – of Tower Bridge or the Tower, (n)or of ancient Gothic Churches. Bringing together what seems separate or fragmented and yet related is, for her, a bridge to a deeper understanding, and using as her medium a photograph of no great merit is a way of challenging what has and has not merit.
Here are two photos of the private view:
