‘I have an interdisciplinary practice comprising photography, sculpture, drawing, video, and writing. I make all of my work in an attempt to situate and define the artist’s role in their interaction with others, be they collaborators or viewers. At its heart, my practice is about the complexity of relationships, dealing with themes of identity politics, therapeutic concepts, smothering, pedestalling, nurture and exploitation.’
Focusing on the notion of ‘holding’ or ‘containment’ within a therapeutic context, and how she can apply this to her photographic subjects. Georgia Clemson’s Image-people (people in photographs) are as influential in the world as their living counterparts.
The artist’s groundbreaking and acclaimed new series Most of the time we are great together comprised works she created during her endeavour to reinvent the frame as a supportive structure.
The way these works are created makes the images inseparable from the emotions we experience with them as viewers.
Interested in the interaction between artist, artworks and the subjects of the artist’s creation, Georgia Clemson is considering questions:
“By telling somebody else’s story am I bringing it to light, or speaking over them?”. In Georgia’s words, “If everybody has the right to tell a story, is the artist’s narrative speaking over its own subjects?” Moreover, do we create our own narrative to add in our experience of the work?
Art ultimately creates, something is born. Georgia Clemson’s artworks are born global, resonating timelessly, yet speaking a global new language.
Georgia Clemson is an emerging artist working and living in London, her work was recently published by Vogue and she will showcase her latest series during PARIS PHOTO week 2019 at the Carousel the Louvre with the gallery.
