‘Episode’ is a collaboration between venues and universities aiming to provoke new research into how artworks both establish and interrogate our experiences of belief in western contemporary culture.
Selected for this exhibition by the curators because of his work in the field of lens-based media, Ingham was one of nine artists included in the show. A key interest of the project was to examine the politics of experience when the orthodox distinctions between fact and fiction are broken down or are superseded by experience itself. Rather than reiterate a crisis of recognition between these categories, as many philosophical discourses and arts practices have done and still do, this exhibition attempts to establish and identify new findings about how these experiences reformulate and shape comprehension of the normative and stable territories of fact or truth.
Ingham aimed to articulate some of his concerns with autobiographical memory and photographs. The exhibition was set within a simple but dynamic installation of floating white laminated screens that encouraged and, guided as well as inhibited the audiences’ movement around the gallery space.
