We are delighted to welcome Dr Johanna Love, of CCW, as a new PARC member.
Johanna is Subject Leader MA Printmaking at Camberwell College of Arts, and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art Printmaking at The University of Brighton. Her fine art practice spans across photography, print, drawing and video to explore notions of disappearance and visual emptiness. She is interested in images that generate visual paradoxes, most often using landscape images, to evoke readings of loss and the unknown, whilst simultaneously provoking perceptual imagination.
She has recently completed a practice based PhD at Chelsea College of Art & Design titled Dust: New contemporary modes of viewing the printed photographic image. Her research examines the ways in which the presence and reading of dust within the photographic image opens up new avenues for artistic thought. She exhibits widely both nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include Behind the eyes: making pictures, Gallery North, Newcastle; Viewfinder, Artspaceh Gallery, Seoul, Korea; British Printmaking Japan, Kyoto Museum & Art Gallery, Japan; Scope: New Photographic Practices, Tsinghua University, Beijing.

Sara Davidmann's exhibition Ken. To be destroyed opened at PARCSPACE on 8 May, 2014. The issue of Fieldstudy, which explored the project (and soon to be online) , arrived just in time for the opening and Sara's talk. Ken to be destroyed, is a truly remarkable achievement which delves into family history and relates a narrative which is powerful and moving. Sara has worked with the archive, using the original material, and also inscribing and marking digital copies and taking these objects into new territories.The show opened on a very busy night at LCC- the opening of the new Graduate School, and PARC was delighted to be part of this new venture. Congratulations to Robin and Sara for their work on realising the show, and to Dean Pavitt of LOUP for his customary flair when designing Fieldstudy.
