New collaboration and publication between Manuel Vason and forty artists published
Hugo Glendinning and Manuel Vason, Double Exposures, London, 2013.

LONDON.- Double Exposures is a new collaboration and publication between photographer and artist Manuel Vason and forty of the most visually provocative artists working in international contemporary live performance. Exploring fresh ways of bridging performance and photography, the full colour hardback book includes established artists such as Ron Athey, Oreet Ashery, Franko B, Ansuman Biswas, Maria Carnesky, Brian Catling, Mat Fraser, Alistair MacLennan, Joshua Sofaer and Mad For Real, as well as newer names including Dickie Beau, Eloise Fornieres, Helena Hunter and Florence Peake. Double Exposures refers to both the accidental and the deliberate in photographic practice, but also relates to the development and presentation of the works themselves. It follows the publication of Exposures twelve years ago, Vason’s groundbreaking and controversial first book.

Vason has worked with two groups of artists in two distinct ways to produce a series of double images, which are presented as diptychs in the book. In the first collaboration – Reversing the Gaze – Vason invited twenty artists he had worked with before to create one image that related to their practice, and one which involved them working with Vason’s body. For the second collaboration – Double Image – Vason asked another twenty artists he had not worked with before and for whom the body is the site and subject of their practice, to create a new performance conceived and presented as two images that worked in correspondence with one another.

Manuel Vason’s artistic practice explores the relationship between photography and performance, presence and representation to shape a special hybrid art form. His collaborations to date have produced some of the most iconic images of live contemporary performance and his work has been published and presented internationally.

Artists featured in Double Exposures: Lucille Acevedo-Jones & Rajni Shah, Katherine Araniello, Oreet Ashery, Ron Athey, Franko B, Julia Bardsley, Dickie Beau, Ansuman Biswas, Marisa Carnesky, Giovanna Maria Casetta, Brian Catling, Marcia Farquhar, Ernst Fischer, Eloise Fornieres, Mat Fraser, Helena Goldwater, Helena Hunter, David Hoyle, Iona Kewney, Noëmi Lakmaier, jamie lewis hadley, Stacy Makishi, Alastair MacLennan, Mad For Real (Cai Yuan & Jian Jun Xi), Rita Marcalo, Michael Mayhew, Nando Messias, Mouse, Martin O’Brien, Sinéad O’Donnell, Harold Offeh, Florence Peake, Áine Phillips, Joshua Sofaer, The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein, Elvira Santamaria Torres, Nicola Canavan, Aaron Williamson and Alexandra Zierle & Paul Carter.

Double Exposures is edited by David Evans and includes an interview with Helena Blacker and essays by David Bate, David Evans, Dominic Johnson, Lois Keidan, Alice Maude-Roxby, Adrien Sina, Chris Townsend and Joanna Zylinska. The writings variously discuss the body, the diptych, documentation, encounters, identity, mediation and the relationship between photography and performance.

Double Exposures is part of a programme marking the 15th anniversary of the Live Art Development Agency (LADA) in 2014 which reflects on the seismic shifts in Live Art practices and discourses that have taken place since 1999 through the lens of the Agency and its work.
