See Me Here! is a photographic installation at Brixton's Black Cultural Archives. Images captured in South London will be projected onto the walls of the archive, accompanied by voices from the Archive's oral history collection and music that complements the photographs. The project is by Dean Ricketts (The Watch-Men Agency) and Liz Johnson-Artur.
Photographer Liz Johnson-Artur explores what it is to be a photographer and the significance of the captured image as she mines its anthropological power and its universal ability to celebrate, or demonise, all within its focus.
For over 25 years Liz Johnson-Artur, camera in hand, has lived vicariously through several lenses, moving unnoticed across South London, recording a world full of contradictions where its regeneration has opened up a hidden world and asked the question "is it better to live in plain sight without political or economic power and just celebrate being kings and queens in your own space?".
Launch event on Friday 23 September, 7.30pm – 9.00pm.
On display from sunset 7.30pm – 11.00pm until 29 September. The installation will be visible from Windrush Square, Brixton.
Presented in association with Afropunk London.
