Something in the Way

Lindsay Seers

What constitutes the artistic practice of Lindsay Seers (1966, UK) is not mere storytelling, but a matrix where there is no formal separation between the conceptual investigation of the act of photography, the camera as apparatus, the common desire for film and photography to act as evidence of events, and the complex historical and personal synchronicities of events themselves. Seers’ work is not so much a detached systematic outline of these relationships, but the actual unfolding of a creative process, where the act of observation and understanding influences the outcome of events themselves. Seers has created a comprehensive film installation for LIAF, to be shown on the ground floor at the Barrel Factory.
