Webber Gallery is a contemporary photographic space in the heart of London's Fitzrovia, dedicated to celebrating the diversity of of the medium. Since 2014, the gallery's innovative programme of exhibitions, artist talks and book launches have explored contemporary photographic themes; from solo presentations of narrative works to experimental group presentations.
For its third edition of Photo London, Webber Gallery are delighted to present a selection of contemporary photographs by recent additions to the gallery roster, and new works by existing artists, which explore themes of power, process, form and performance.
Webber Gallery continues to push the boundaries of the photographic medium, presenting several exciting new process-based pieces by Marton Perlaki, Theo Simpson and newly represented experimental artist, Jeremy Everett. These works investigate the base materiality of photography and how an image can be endlessly applied, reapplied, transfigured and reinterpreted as a concept.
Themes of performance, identity and form are represented in the works of Mel Bles and a new signing, Black American-Japanese photographer Chieska Fortune Smith. Senta Simond continues her figurative studies with a new collaboration with Marie, a key protaganist in her hugely acclaimed series Rayon Vert.
Social constructs are examined by two American artists; Daniel Shea who presents work from Ex-Nihilo, a collaborative project which visualises sustainability and social responsibility, and a new Webber artist, Zora J Murff, who uses artistic practice to highlight the intersections between social systems and art. With a background in psychology and social services, and a previous role working in a juvenile corrections facility, Murff’s work explores complex narratives about race, power, violence, control and privacy.
