David McCue’s (Creative Scotland document Fellow January–March 2015) practice explores photography and its relationship to the documentary genre. During his stay at the BSR, he has focused his research on how knowledge and history are authored, approved, archived and disseminated. His work considers notions of subliminality and visibility with regards to intelligence and censorship. What substantiates a photograph as a trusted document – individual perception, institutional validation or simply the passing of time?

Il lavoro di David McCue (Creative Scotland document Fellow gennaio–marzo 2015) esplora la fotografia e la sua relazione con il genere documentaristico. Durante la sua residenza alla BSR, l’artista ha incentrato la propria ricerca sul come la conoscenza e la storia siano create, approvate, archiviate e diffuse. Il suo lavoro considera le nozioni di subliminalità e visibilità, con riguardo all’intelligenza e alla censura. Cos’è che rende la fotografia un documento affidabile: la percezione individuale, la validità istituzionale o, semplicemente, lo scorrere del tempo?

During his residency Daniele Sambo (Creative Scotland document Fellow, January – March 2014) has focussed on exploring the boundaries between image and objecthood through the use of photography and installations.  Studying the monumental and the everyday use of elements in public spaces, Sambo questions notions of nature and artifice, transformation and repetition, communities and conflict.

Durante la sua residenza Daniele Sambo (Creative Scotland document Fellow, gennaio – marzo 2014) si è concentrato sui confini tra immagine e oggetto, attraverso l’uso di fotografia e installazioni.  Studiando il monumentale e l’uso quotidiano di elementi negli spazi pubblici, Sambo interroga i rapporti tra natura e artifizio, trasformazione e ripetizione, comunità e conflitto.
