LagosPhoto presents Globalised Aesthetics - Fluidity of images.
In the digital world conversing and corresponding aesthetics allow images to become mobile irrespective of their heritage. In this conversation, the panel questions if the art market truly embraces various tonalities, if aesthetics intersect effortlessly as it did before the internet, and if photographers can resist fashion and trends in order to work intrinsically.
Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee is an artist based between London and Singapore. Her work navigates the nuances and intricacies that arise out of history and memory. Meditating on fractured and lost traditions, themes of displacement and nostalgia weave in and out of her storytelling. Through visual and textual interventions, she attempts an undoing of power structures and knowledge production. By negotiating the dynamic of the ‘near’ and ‘elsewhere’, her practice works to remap a singular history, steering narratives toward alternate and fluid territories.
