On PHOTOcopy exhibition at 44AD artspace

Fringe Arts Bath and 44AD are delighted to present the first edition of On Photocopy.

Celebrating the means of mechanical reproduction of creative works using the humble photocopier. A cheap and instant form of communication, the photocopy has been used for social/political campaigns, the zine has seen resurgence recently.
 
1964 Andy Warhol showed his cheek and Bridget Berlin flashed her breasts to the Photostat copy machine that they found in the local corner shop to produce a collaborative self portrait series; these high contrast reproductions were then re-presented as silver gelatin prints for exhibition.
 
Aesthetic of the copy, black and white or colour; the smell of warm toner and the semi-gloss finish and shifted colour from the original. The process itself a is democratic, cheap and accessible form of making and distributing work.

On Photocopy edition 1 has drawn works from over 70 artists (some international) from a call out on the theme of displacement through photocopy and moving image.
 
The exhibition has had no editing and everything that was submitted has been presented using standard ISO paper sizes A4 & A3.  Video works are displayed on the screens through out the show.

The show is an ongoing growing collection and you are welcome to add your response, you will find a photocopier in the main space to leave your mark.
