Manuel Vason: Double Exposures

Double Exposures is a new collaborative venture between Manuel Vason and forty of the most visually arresting artists working with performance in the UK. Ten years after his first, ground breaking book, Exposures, Vason has produced another extraordinary body of work, which sets out new ways of bridging performance and photography.

For Double Exposures, Vason has worked with two groups of artists, using two distinct types of collaboration, to produce a series of double images.

Artists who had previously worked with Vason were invited to create two images, one of their own practice and another, where they took on the role of the photographer, shaping an image with Vason’s body. A second group of new collaborators were invited to create a performance, which could be captured in two photographs. All the images exist as doubles – pairs – diptychs.

Double Exposures includes commissioned essays on photography and performance by David Bate, David Evans, Dominic Johnson, Lois Keidan, Alice Maude-Roxby, Adrien Sina, Chris Townsend, and Joanna Zylinska and an interview with Helena Blaker. Themes explored include the body, the diptych, documentation, encounters, identity, mediation and the relationship between photography and performance.

In photography, a ‘double exposure’ can be accidental or deliberate. Both types permeate Double Exposures, making it Manuel Vason’s most ambitious project to date.
