"SPBH Book Club VI is a forensic loss and renovation scan by artist Melinda Gibson. During a fire at her studio in South London, Gibson saw smoke and water billow out into space. Her response at the time was instinctive. and visceral, etching large-format negatives on the walls, exposing them to these elements and watching as they abstracted, each becoming a seductive record of what happened there. Afterwards, she combed through what was left, analyzing and photographing the material and putting it together in book form The making of the book itself became a cathartic process of understanding and survival.
In a ritual act of defiance, Gibson smokes each book in a hand-built smokehouse sealed in plastic to contain the scent, each becoming a unique sensory object offering an experience that transcends the pages of the book.
By investigating the event and re-establishing it in small performative acts of satiety, this book is a way to contain the experience and make it your own.
Melinda Gibson born in 1985 is a British artist based in London. She is a Professor of Photography at Nottingham Trent University and has published two books, Photography as Contemporary Art and Miss Titus Becomes a Regular Army Mac. Both publications are in a number of public and private collections, including those of The National. The Art Library and the V & amp; A. Gibson has exhibited internationally, including shows at the Dong Gang Museum of Photography in South Korea and the Houston Photography Center. Gibson's latest project, Lunar Caustic, debuts in a trio show at Galerie Paris-Beijing in September. "mbre."
