Abstract

An international group exhibition curated by Duan Yuting, Artistic Director of the 2007 Lianzhou International Photography Festival, featuring seven photographic prints from Lock’s ongoing series, Lost Horizons. The exhibition explores ‘contemporary photography in terms of its nature as an event taking place in world, its temporality and narrative capacity’. Lost Horizons is a body of photographic work in progress, which depicts marginal acts of intervention and staging in anonymous settings, utilising small crudely made figures and found artefacts. The work was initiated while Lock was artist-in-residence at the Visual Studies Workshop, Rochester, NY, USA (17.09.06 – 18.10.06. This residency was funded by Arts Council England (ACE) and VSW itself. The Lost Horizons work has been further developed during 2007, again using funds from ACE (altogether a total individual award from the Arts Council of £5000). Work from Lost Horizons has been editioned by Pavilion, Leeds, UK and two images from the series are published in the organisation’s 25th anniversary publication (26 pages, illustrated, ISBN 978-09544775-3-0). Pavilion is a Leeds-based visual arts commissioning agency that collaborates with artists to make new work, using photography and digital media. The organisation exhibits, publishes and markets the work of emerging and established practitioners. In Lost Horizons Lock continues to explore the pyschological legacy and the potential of both marginal spaces and seemingly insignificant objects, at the same time exploring what is at stake in the transformation of ephemeral conjunctions of unimportant subjects into the permanence of a photographic record.
