AMBIT Artists Talks: Saturday 22nd June at 3pm
Free and all welcome!

Join exhibiting artists Edyta Majewska,Csilla Kozma and Katy Hundertmark as they discuss their projects currently on show as part of AMBIT: Photographies from Scotland.

AMBIT is an exhibition of work celebrating new and diverse approaches to photographic image making in Scotland. The participating artists deploy diverse approaches, including the everyday in social landscape, performative and object based intersections with photography, alternative processes embracing hybrids between photography and printmaking, and themes from the theatrical and mythical, to those of gender and citizenship.

Katy Hundertmark is a German born artist based in Edinburgh. Her photographic practice employs performance as a way of inhabiting the photographic space. In ‘Studies in Gravitation’ Hundertmark revisits the performative potential of photography through a series of photographs that reintroduce the self as performer and capture her attempt of grasping the intangible.

The performative possibilities of photographic images are at the core of Hungarian born Csilla Kozma, whose most recent body of work explores the idiosyncratic nature of the Mordançage process. Kozma’s unique and expressive prints explore the representation of the figure and self through a post-photographic lens, utilising the potentiality of alternative photographic processes to evoke tension and mystery whilst creating her own photographic reality.

Similarly Edyta Majewska turns the camera on herself as she documents the arduous process of applying for British Citizenship. Majewska, a Polish born artist who has been based in Glasgow for over twenty years, turns her experience of being an Eastern European national in Post-Brexit Britain into ‘Other White’, a moving and immersive photographic installation and a timely record of the precarious and hostile political climate of modern day Britain.
