A solo exhibition of works by Peter Spiers
Combining photography and performance into an exhibition of photo-actions Coincidence3 Experiment takes us on an investigation into the nature of coincidence; those happy accidents and moments when locale, content and event combine to create occurrences that manifest beyond our appreciable input.
About the artist:
Born 1970, Middlesbrough, Peter Spiers holds a BA Hons from Staffordshire University and a Master of Fine Art and Ph.D. in Fine Art from the University of Ulster. Operating out of Northern Ireland since 1999, he has exhibited nationally and internationally, including previously with the GTG in Belfast and Taiwan.
“My research and practice have been directed towards challenging the dominance of representational mechanisms within photographic imaging. Using photo-actions that combine strategies of improvised and durational performance with photographic processes, the research presents the image as an element within the lived event; opening it up to a condition of direct encounter” Peter Spiers.
