Dark Matters: Selected photographs by Janina Green, Curated by Naomi Cass & Pippa Milne
Photographic theorist, Ariella Azoulay speaks of photography as an event. For Janina Green, such events (rather than photographs of events) have lent structure to her life. From her vast oeuvre, this selection of images is representative of aspects of Green’s, eclectic and experimental practice over a 30-year period as she made observations about domesticity, motherhood, reading, teaching, sexual politics, theory and psychology.
To accompany the exhibition, Green has produced a candid set of notes, both technical and personal, which offer an unusual level of insight into the work and give context to the artist and her environment as she made them.
