From the exhibition IN/VISIBILITY
Hippolyte Studio

IN/VISIBILITY reflects on the politics of visibility. The works in the exhibition ask whether you must be visible and on what terms. When fighting for the rights of minorities, a photograph is often used for its evidentiary power—that’s when making people and phenomena visible takes centre stage. However, otherness is not always visible, or bringing it forth can put the people in the pictures in a vulnerable position. The series proposes photographic methods centred on self-determination, failure, and ambiguity.
