Brighton Photo Biennial 2015

Plain Materials

Cornford & Cross and Andrew Lacon explore the dialogue between photography and sculpture.

For PLANE MATERIALS Lacon draws on an historic Rome album and photographs from the Library of Birmingham’s archive.

Andrew Lacon is specifically concerned with the framing and methodology behindphotographs of Roman sculpture.


Established artist duo, Cornford & Cross work differently, a non-studio based practice, they create work through discussion and debate, positing different conceptual ideas. Their work Afterimage alludes to the an experience of a community and asks viewers to question their role in the exhibition.

This collaborative exhibition is a new commission exploring historical and contemporary conversations around how photography is represented.
