A digital photographer who eschews Photoshop, Chloe Rosser captures the uncanny in the ordinary through composition alone. In Function, her images document the muscle tension and corporeal strain of strange performances enacted for the camera. Photographing bodies whose heads and hands, necks and limbs, are obscured through tricks of contortion and lens angle, Rosser reveals a new take on the most familiar of fleshy terrains. The sculptural nudes she choreographs into still lifes become unrecognizable. Function follows the close interactions of bodily forms that are both intimate and anonymous, vulnerable and impervious.

Working across different media- film, video, installation, photography, sculpture, sound and text, Heydt presents an abstract proposition for a world on the periphery of history, one that not only appears haunted by the ghosts of the past, but built on it. Heydt’s layered imagery conflate time and place, colliding and merging generations of possibilities, and disrupting logical relationships between occurrences.

Isolation for many has become a time of self-reflection and a momentary period to stop, look around and appreciate the here and now. Zara Tisma’s latest body of work embodies just that, drawing inspiration from the surrounding countryside and the neighbouring houses on her street.
