Anomalies

Anomalies

 

The theme for this group show is ‘Anomalies’

An anomaly is something that, or someone who, deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected; is odd, peculiar, quirky, eccentric or rare; is unlike the common type or does not follow the common rule, arrangement or form; is exceptional; is unsatisfactory; does not conform to law or custom; has irregular behaviour; is abnormal. The Greek word from which the term is derived literally means ‘uneven’.

Semaphore is interested in how you as a photographer understand the theme ‘Anomalies’. The various definitions above are for reference only and should not be understood as directives. Artists are asked to submit a text along with their work to explain how they understand their work to fit in with the theme.

Who can apply?

You have to be an artist who is a citizen of one of the countries of the African continent or an artist whose main country of residence has been one of the countries of the African continent for more than three years.

We are looking for artists who already have a substantial body of work to show. We discourage applicants from sending in photographs that are not part of a series.

 

What are the text requirements?

Upload your CV or resume in .txt, .pdf, .doc or .docx formats. Your CV or resume has to be relevant to your career as an artist. Files should be no larger than 1MB.

Upload a statement about your work and how you understand it to fit in with the theme ‘Anomalies’ in the upload form of the gallery’s website.
