Tangible Photography: On Books, Mountains and Rivers, online artist talk by Chloe Dewe Mathews

Page Not Found is delighted to invite you to an online artist talk by artist, photographer and filmmaker Chloe Dewe Mathews.

This event marks the fourth instalment of our Tangible Photography program, which started at the beginning of 2020 and was postponed due to the pandemic. The dematerialization of the image created for some artists with a photographic practice a desire for tangibility, that is: for a materiality accessible by touch. Publishing appears in this context as a natural strategy to answer this desire and to reinstate the photographic image in its materiality. This program presents a large selection of publishing practices to show the diversity of their approaches.

Chloe Dewe Mathews makes work in the documentary tradition. Her practice explores the human relationship to landscape and the ways in which photography can project the past onto the present, allowing for time to be expanded and contracted and multiple narratives to be explored side by side.  In a talk for Page Not Found, she will discuss her bookworks, including “In Search of Frankenstein” and “Thames Log”.

Chloe Dewe Mathews is an artist, photographer, and filmmaker. Her work is internationally recognised, exhibiting at Tate Modern, Irish Museum of Modern Art and Staatliche Kunstsammlungen, Dresden; as well as being published widely in newspapers and magazines such as the Guardian, New Yorker, Financial Times and Le Monde. She is the recipient of the Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography from Harvard University’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, and her work is held in public collections such as the British Council Art Collection, the National Galleries of Scotland and the Irish State Art Collection.  Thames Log is her fourth monograph, following Shot at Dawn(Ivorypress, 2014), Caspian: the Elements (Aperture / Peabody Press, 2018) and In Search of Frankenstein (Kodoji Press, 2018).
