Cherelle Sappleton: Among Other Things

Cherelle Sappleton: Among Other Things

Exeter Phoenix is pleased to present Among Other Things, a solo exhibition by London based artist Cherelle Sappleton who’s practice centres on an exploration of photographic media, with an interest in feminist agendas and performance, utilising abstraction and surrealist aesthetics. Seeking alternative ways to address the problems she identifies with representing ‘blackness’ and the (female) body as an artist, her work is grounded in processes of collage and abstraction, which are used to explore and respond to issues of representation, agency and the materiality of photographic imagery.

Sappleton works with both traditional hand cut, paper-collaging techniques and with digital overlays and manipulation of imagery scanned from the original. By isolating individual body parts or otherwise fragmenting and distorting pre-existing source images, she seeks to complicate them – intentionally making them difficult to read - in an effort to reflect the complex layering of image and identity, not only in her personal experiences but also as a universal human experience.
