FORMAT19: Mutable, Multiple

Composed around a series of photographic works that challenge modes of documentary and storytelling, Mutable, Multiple is an exhibition that explores how narrative, history, memory and myth can be recalibrated as a way of coming to terms with complex and changing realities.

A story of stories, the exhibition features six artists – Max Pinckers, Edgar Martins, Stefanie Moshammer, Amani Willett, Anne Golaz and Virginie Rebetez – all of whom make use of the indirect narrative potential of photography to engage with their subject. Brought together in the context of Mutable, Multiple the projects occupy a hybrid documentary space between image and information, fiction and evidence, where associations of interviews, literature, press material, news footage, archival interventions and staged photography are the new norm.

From a humanist perspective, Mutable, Multiple brings to bear issues of entrapment and disappearance, fantasy and escape, exile and longing. In various ways each project deals with fractured lives that are made apparent or concealed, allowing the viewer to meditate on the situations in which individuals can achieve ‘in/visibility’ in the world. Curated by Tim Clark and Louise Fedotov-Clements. 

Mutable, Multiple brings to bear issues of entrapment and disappearance, fantasy and escape, exile and longing.
