What is lost... what has beenJohn Paul Evans

26 March - 14 May 2022

What is lost …what has been is a visual soliloquy to ‘absent friends’, people I considered my family. The works are also a coda to my installation ‘in the sweet bye & bye’ which was a  photographic cathexis in response to the death of my closest friend in Dec 2017. His death brought back memories of my father’s close friend, who died some years before.

The autoethnographic process of weaving one’s personal history into a visual dialogue is useful to explore photography’s tendency towards  memorialisation and also to analyse ideas of belonging/otherness, mourning and  melancholia in relation to the photographic family album.
