Retrospective of Work by London Based Artist Documents Modern Day Alienation

LONDON.- The Wapping Project Bankside, a new gallery space adjacent to Tate Modern dedicated to photography and film is to host a new solo exhibition by the London based photographic artist Annabel Elgar from 15 April until 22 May.

Established by Jules Wright, the founder and creative director of the Award-Winning Wapping Project in East London, the Wapping Project Bankside will feature images from Elgar’s ongoing Refuge series (started in 2005) as well as her enigmatic Black Flag series made between 2001-2003.

Annabel Elgar is an artist whose photographic works map out a borderland of fragile enclaves and lost directions. In her work, she explores themes of 'outsiderdom', of social recoil and contemporary alienation. Often shot in shack-like surrounds, which Elgar painstakingly creates, the images that Elgar captures map out an obsessive undercurrent of activity, where the allusion towards cult and secrecy remains constant, and yet the locale is never clarified.

Reflecting on the latest Wapping Project Show, Jules Wright says: “The stories that Elgar relates to us are cross-cut by familiar themes: madness and sadness and badness all have their role to play in these scenarios. In these stories the struggles between the rich and the poor are relentless and eternal, the home is a place of poverty and ruin, the family a potential site of treachery and despair. Yet her work captures an incredibly honest beauty that resonates with you long after you leave the gallery.”

The Wapping Project Bankside is located at 65a Hopton Street, London SE1 9LR. It is open Tuesday to Saturday 10.00-18.00 and on Monday by appointment only. Closed Sunday.

Annabel Elgar has an MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art and her work has featured in numerous international exhibitions and publications throughout Europe and North America. Her work has recently been shown in Theatres of the Real at the FotoMuseum Antwerp (accompanied by a book published by Photoworks) and in the book and exhibition New Photography in Britain at the Galleria Civica di Modena, Italy. She has had two solo shows at the Wapping Project, London and has also exhibited at, amongst others, Kunsthalle Lophem, Loppem, Belgium, Zephyr Centre for Photography, Mannheim, Germany, Sweet Briar College, Virginia, USA, Galerie Polaris, Paris, the Museum of New Art, Detroit, USA and Error One, Antwerp, Belgium.
