Summertime and the Living is [not] easy in Александровка - Solo exhibition at South Square Gallery

January 22, 2016

 

Save the date for my solo exhibition at South Square Centre, Thornton, BD13 3LD.

Private view is on Fri 5th Feb 2016, 7-9pm

Exhibition open: Sat 6th Feb - Sun 28th Feb. 

 

Photographic Artist Madeleine Phiri explores rural living in Russia. In the West, a self-sustainable life style is almost unimaginable, but this is reality for many in Russian villages. A wide variety of vegetables are planted and harvested by the Холодова (Holodova) family and used for consumption rather than resale. Борщ (Borshch) is the widely known red stew and a celebrated national dish. The ingredients are home grown and Madeleine created a series of Cyanotypes alongside the recipe, which is hand written in Cyrillic. The photographs of the field, kitchen and gardening tools are printed from black & white negatives in the darkroom using Liquid Light on high quality textured paper. Gems from Madeleine’s grandmother’s photo album tell their own stories of rural living.
