Francoise and Daniel Cartier
UH Gallery at the Museum of St Albans
31 January - 14 March 2014.
Black and white photosensitive paper and light – two fundamentals of photography are at the heart of F&D Cartier’s fascinating exhibition.
Unexposed photographic paper, some over 100 years old – is exposed and through a subtle interplay with space and light, the chromatic transformation of the paper begins.
Dependent on its composition and the nature of its contact with light, the paper develops random colour patterns over time. To perceive the progressive saturation of the paper, the spectator is asked to be patient and to remain still for a few moments in order to observe this latent process.
A collaboration with Ffotogallery, Cardiff - supported by Pro Helvetia (Swiss Arts Council), Swiss Cultural Fund in Britain and Swisslos Culture Canton de Berne.
