The third exhibition as part of EXHIBIT's Super Estate Projects is this series of photographs by British artist, Kathryn Faulkner. During her residency at the gallery, Faulkner visited residents of the Golden Lane Estate (the focus of the gallery), observing how they live with books and looking at the "intimate scale of the living spaces". Through conversations with her subjects about individual experiences, the aim is to "capture moments that represent personal relationships with reading and with the book as object."
The images (which look at the impusle to collect books) are shot on medium format film and traditionally hand printed full frame, a methodology in keeping with Modernism’s ‘truth to materials’ ethos. Some of the most beautiful pictures are a series of colour pinhole photographs of residents reading in their favorite spot, projected in the enclosed space downstairs.
