“To celebrate the launch of a major new partnership between FORMAT and Lishui International Photography Festival in China, Director of FORMAT, Louise Fedotov-Clements, has curated Sleight of Hand, an exhibition presenting work by six artists – Brian Griffin; Regine Petersen; John Angerson; Yvette Monahan and Jan Stradtmann, plus Max Pinckers (curated by Tim Clark), at Lishui Art Museum.
Each of the projects examines belief, control and misdirection through photography by unravelling our understanding of history, landscape and documentary. They challenge our concept of storytelling by looking beneath the surface layer of the image and encouraging viewers to look for longer, offering multiple realities through skilful deception and layered narratives.” (screenshot and text: FORMAT Festival)
