DIGITAL view

Press Release: 15/10/2007

I AM FOTO exhibition at the view


Don’t miss Yesim Hussein’s exhibition in the view, Winchester’s visual arts space on Bridge Street. Her exhibition ‘I AM FOTO’ runs until Friday 2nd November 2007.

Yesim Hussein studied graphic design at Southampton Solent University and now produces her own artwork.  She uses various methods and mediums in her designs including photography, illustration, typography and the appropriated image.

She said: “The exhibition is a collection of digital collages created by means of visual sampling. I have collected and photographed cameras from various eras and incorporated parts of them into the work. I have explored the idea of camera as subject rather than object; the relationship between camera and photo and also between that of the 'viewer' and the 'viewed'.”

the view is managed and funded by Winchester City Council’s Arts Development Service with the help of artist and teacher Ali Eales, and is for the display of new work created by local people who are either studying art or are early career artists and craft makers. If you would like more information about showing work there or about any of the artists involved, please contact Faye Pain in the City Council’s cultural services division on 01962 848 303 or email fpain@winchester.gov.uk
