The photographers of The Gate Darkroom (0-003) are participating in Urban Photo Fest 17 with the exhibition No Maps For What We Know.
"When does one need a map, if not when in unfamiliar territory or a foreign land? The photographers of the Gate Darkroom are going through a buoyant transition, having recently moved into their new home by the river, in Woolwich. Between the Iris shipwreck and the plastic moulding factory they are navigating a new territory, listening to the river, and searching for light. Memories will help them remember where they came from, and clues found on the way will lead them into an unknown landscape. Elements of information appear and disappear; names are edited out, new lines are marked and realities shift They will explore processes of mapping, shared experience, contours, boundaries, pathways, and inhabiting the urban edgelands."
Curated by Sarah Ainslie, exhibiting artists include Molly Behagg, Thomas Caron-Delion, Lucia Cipriano, Sarah Garrod, Carô Gervay, Liz Gorman, Toby Jacobs, Ioana Marinca, Lee Murphy, Giulia Paci, Henry Palmer, Maurits Rozema, Alex Stone and David Whiting.
Preview: Monday 13 November 2017, 6-8pm Exhibition open daily from 12-8pm NX Gallery, 310 New Cross Road, London SE14 3AF www.urbanphotofest.org/no-maps-what-we-know
