A Day At Home, the new photographic series by Charlotte Colbert, is a very personal exploration of the relationship between the writer and the home, the real and the imagined, identity and the self. A study of madness, the fragility of our sense of existence, reality and belonging. The writer and housewife coming together in their sense of isolation, solitude and confinement within a space which both closes in on them and but also opens up into an epic landscape of surreal imaginings. She shoots in an increasingly derelict house and uses medium format film, allowing the character to be overwhelmed, defined and even disappear in her surroundings. The black and white images shown within the context of their original negative, are like surreal fragments of a dream or nightmare.
We are looking forward to see the exhibition!
