Join us on Wednesday evening, February 7th for the Book Launch of Edmund Clark’s ‘My Shadow’s Reflection’ at Flowers Gallery, 82 Kingsland Road, London E2. 6-8pm.
Published by @herepress in collaboration with @ikongallery the book comprises architectural images of the prison, HMP Grendon, close-ups of flowers and leaves that grow within the prison and have been picked and pressed by Clark and images of the men made with a pinhole camera. Standing before the camera in a group situation for exposures of six minutes, the men talk in response to questions about their personal and criminal narratives. As they talk and move they shape the image of themselves. The men then respond, sharing what they think the image means to them and the outside world. In the exhibition at Ikon Gallery, the images are projected onto and through the green sheets the men sleep between. In this publication their words are printed on green pages in the centre of the book.
