Overview

Exhibition dates: 23 February – 2 June.

 
The shortlisted artists are: Shortlisted for the exhibition, VALIE EXPORT – The Photographs, VALIE EXPORT (b. 1940, Austria) became notorious from the late 1960s for her radical performances and critical examination of women’s role in society and the arts. Photography has played a pivotal role in her work, from documentation to multimedia installations and single works. Through fusing photography and Warli painting in their shortlisted book, Fields of Sight (2023), photographer Gauri Gill (b. 1970, India) and painter Rajesh Vangad (b. 1975, India) collaboratively explore how viewers ascribe meaning to a place and how the act of viewing itself creates complicity. They encourage viewers to explore the hidden, elusive layers that exist beneath the surface. Lebohang Kganye’s (b. 1990, South Africa) photographic projects cross personal and collective histories in her shortlisted exhibition, Haufi nyana? I’ve come to take you home. Her skilful blending of images and words allows her to navigate the complexity of the South African experience, opening new ways of understanding and contributing to the process of decolonisation. Hrair Sarkissian’s (b. 1973, Syria) conceptual photography focuses on deeply personal narratives that reflect the complexity of larger historical and social issues.

In his shortlisted exhibition, The Other Side of Nothing, large-scale photographs, film and installations all aim to evoke emotional experiences, foster awareness and a sense of solidarity.
