  • Matt Golden at BALTIC 39 from 25-29 Jan and Limoncello Show until 11th Feb

  • Matt Golden has been busy with two shows, one with Natsue for four days only at Baltic 39 under the name Golden Family.
    His own show at Limoncello is titled ‘BISONS’. Under the Golden Family moniker, Matt presents ‘He Who Eats The Durian Smells Of Durian’ (2017), a series of photographs in collaboration with Natsue Ikeda and their daughter Nanaho, documenting Juan Carlode's travels in remote parts of the world where he immerses himself in unfamiliar territories. Through the anachronistic, the spiritual and sacred, Carlode attempts to remedy his growing feelings of disconnect with the modern world: his chronicles include the drug-induced spiritual healing of a sick woman in the Malay jungle; journeying with Aboriginal communities along the Fraser and Nicola rivers of British Columbia and walking the mountain path from which Issa, the Haiku poet, drew inspiration. The resulting photographs have been serialised as standalone images in contemporary style magazines Wonderland and Rollacoaster. The magazines temporarily frame these deliberately timeless and romantic images within a modern vernacular. Here, removed from the magazines, the twenty images are mounted on a vertical wooden stage that has been built from the floorboards of Golden’s studio, which itself was once a venue for live music.

  • Last Chance to see Simon Fujiwara at the Photographers Gallery

  • Ending on the 29th January, Simon's exhibition 'Joanne' explores the artist's former secondary school art teacher Joanne Sully in different shades and lights. The teacher had a profound impact on the creative development of the artist during his stint as a scholarship student at the prestigious Harrow School for boys. But, Joanne’s reputation as a teacher and a public figure, faced the wrath of the media campaigns upon the discovery and circulation of a tabloid scandal featuring her in certain private photographs which are deemed objectionable in conservative social standards. Five years later, the artist Simon Fujiwara and his inspirational subject Joanne, embarked on the production of this short film that unfolds the struggle she had to wade through in the wake of the scandal that aimed to tarnish her image presenting a very complex picture of her. The exhibition at The Photographers’ Gallery attempts to address the issues around the representation of women in social media, the tabloid press and consumer culture http://thephotographersgallery.org.uk/joanne
