BPF OPEN18 Solo Exhibition: Consider Falling

29 September 201828 October 2018

Installation of Sarah Howe's work Consider Falling

Sarah Howe as the recipient of the 2018 Brighton Photo Fringe Open Solo Exhibition.

Howe’s winning work, the series Consider Falling, is taken from her graduate show at the Royal College of Art. Composed of mediated fragments, moving image excerpts and merged within an installation, Consider Falling balances on the edge of document and form. Rooted in research surrounding the anxiety disorders Derealisation (the condition wherein a person feels the reality surrounding them is unreal) and Depersonalisation (a feeling of detachment from oneself, or that oneself is unreal), the precarious nature of perception is performed through the series of works that accumulate to create a subtly unsettling experience.

Howe says of this work: “Through interviews with service users at the DPD research centre and those met online, I started to piece together a loose understanding of the conditions they described. In doing so I began to marry the political slippage, in light of recent shifts, of an altered reality, one that is yet to be navigated. A foot into the unknown.”
