Archive > Samantha Samuel, Finding Time

Exhibition runs from 6pm 21st August – 3pm 3 September 2015.

Samuel rips apart advertising posters that she finds on the street, and that have been stuck on top of one another for weeks, months and years. In tearing them apart, Samuel fragments word, image and date and exposes sections of aged paper and passed events. Samuel then puts these pieces back together in a series of coincidences and typographical encounters, that create a new meaning in the visual. The result is that her body of work becomes a witness to times past as well as to time passing by; but also each individual piece has its independent story. By turning a ubiquitous, commercial and overlooked poster into a unique visual with purpose, Samuel's work is intended to prompt this reflection on time.
