Exhibition: The Trace @ MargatePhotoFest

The Boy and The Girl from the project Time stands still when I think of you

The Trace

13 - 14 August


Across eight unique venues, from an old substation to a gallery at the end of Margate pier, an international array of established and emerging artists will exhibit their responses to the theme

The line-up includes:
Martin Parr: 12 photographs by the celebrated photographer Martin Parr.
Heather Barnett: expanding on the artist’s recent “Physarum Experiments” the interactive installation will get the audience to draw using ‘slime food’. A camera will record as the slime mould, a micro-organism, grows along ‘slime food’ paths with its progress over the weekend being made into a short video for the MPF website.
Ed Thompson: Shortlisted for the recent Magnum Photographic Prize, Thompson will be exhibiting ‘Transition Town’. The work explores how a community-led charity is having significant effects on how the town of Totnes is being run.

A Space Between: Curated by Sepake Angiama and Loren Hansi Momodu the series of images will explore changes in photography in reference to Margate’s own state of transition.
The Trace: This show aims to broaden the definition of what constitutes art photography. The space includes works by David Blackmore, who records the burial of a disposable camera with the aim of one day retrieving it and Kate Elliott who will present a project derived from a family archive that was discovered in a skip in Belsize Park.
Peter Kennard: Following the recent publication of @Earth (Tate Publishing) the artist will exhibit a new installation consisting of books hanging from the ceiling and a large scale projection to explore the value of the political artist within photography.
Wandering Bears: The exhibition will be composed of ‘everyday’ snapshots. Wandering Bears eloquently demonstrate how to mount a photography exhibition using everyday snapshots which were emailed to them through an ‘open submission’ selection process.
Various Points: The photobook is now seen by many as an art form in itself. Various Points will be curating an exhibition of books composed from entries to the Margate Photofest 2 Photobook Competition alongside Various Points publications. 

Broad Vision: The project brings together researchers from various different disciplines: The Photographic Arts, Imaging Science, Illustration, Computer Science, Psychology and Biomedical Sciences, to explore and interpret microscopic worlds.
Future Youth Project (FYP): Work will be shown from the charity’s recent trip to visit orphanages in the Ukraine. The mini-bus they took to the Ukraine will be converted into a gallery in order to display the images.
Talks by Lomography expert Kevin Meredith, browsing and purchase stands from Hotshoe and Photoworks magazines and more.
