Constructed Landscapes (Online exhibition)
26 Jun – 18 Jul 2020
Sid Motion Gallery is pleased to launch its first exhibition on the Vortic Collect app, ‘Constructed Landscapes’ a solo show by Dafna Talmor, as part of the London Collective.
Launching 26 June 2020, London Collective on the Vortic Collect app, brings together over 40 of the UK’s best commercial galleries to present exhibitions on the new extended reality app for the art world.
'Constructed Landscapes' is an ongoing project by Dafna Talmor consisting of two sub-series, which stem from a personal archive of photographs initially shot as keepsakes across different locations. Produced by collaging medium format colour negatives, the resulting images are staged landscapes, a conflation combining the ‘real’ and the imaginary.
London Collective consists of art dealers and gallerists who came together on Vortic in recognition that this is a defining moment of change in how art is accessed. Whilst a number of London galleries have recently reopened, travel and other restrictions mean many people are still unable to visit exhibitions in person.
Her first monograph, Constructed Landscapes, published by Fw:Books was released in October 2020, longlisted for the Kraszna-Krausz Photography Book Award 2021.
Recent solo shows include ‘Straight Lines are a Human Invention’, Sid Motion Gallery, London, 2019; ‘Constructed Landscapes’, TOBE Gallery, Budapest, 2018 & Photofusion, London, 2017 and group exhibitions include ‘Known and Strange’, V&A Museum, London, 2021; ‘Her Ground: Women Photographing Landscape’, Flowers East, London, 2019; ‘…on making’, Gdansk National Museum, Poland, 2019; ‘Moving the Image: Photography and its Actions’, Camberwell Space, London, 2019.
Talmor was shortlisted for the BNL BNP Paribas Group Award (2019), the MACK First Book Award and Unseen Dummy Award (2018), Talmor was the recipient of a Breathing SPACE Bursary (2016) and several Arts Council England Grants for the Arts Awards. Talmor is represented by Sid Motion Gallery in London and TOBE Gallery in Budapest.
