Guest exhibition

Wed 12 June 2024 – Sat 15 June 2024


Photofantasy is an artistic method, composed of collaging photographic images, that was first termed by the artist Jo Spence (1924-1992). The purpose of this method was to allow Spence to continue creating visual works that expressed “the stories and actions in her mind” (Spence 2013) while living with exhaustion, reduced access to the outside world and her changing bodily appearance. Returning to Spence’s work retrospectively, there is great potential in the method of photofantasy, as a mode of expression uniquely attuned to the challenges faced by people who have been diagnosed with cancer. This exhibition will showcase the works of Jo Spence alongside artworks created in photofantasy workshops, that were held with people who have had cancer.

Open: 11.00 - 18.00
