Curator and photographic artist Bindi Vora will be joined by Fiona Rogers for a conversation around her photobook, Mountain of Salt. The early iterations of the work, an expansive series of text-based collage works comprising found photographs and digital shape collages, explored society at a time in which the use and consumption of language – however fragmented, misinformed, measured or rhetorical – carried such weight.
Each visual is married to phrases and statements appropriated from news articles, press conferences, and social media. Collectively the images trace the interweaving social, political and ideological arcs of the early phases of the pandemic, the post-Brexit era, and Black Lives Matter, landing squarely on the potency of language.
Mountain of Salt is published by Perimeter Editions, 2023.
This talk will be followed by a book signing
