Across four weeks Kettle’s Yard will present a programme of quick-fire exhibitions,  each lasting for only one week.

A recent body of work by artists Broomberg & Chanarin is shown for the first time in the UK in week three of fig-futures. Bandage the knife not the wound (2018) is an ongoing series of overlaid photographic prints produced by the artists in what they describe as a ‘visual exchange’ – images that have been significant to them during the course of their collaborative career are revisited and printed by one and left for the other to overprint with another image.

The artists have created over 40 of these beautiful, ethereal works that give a unique insight into their thought processes and provoke questions around the changing nature of photography and image production in the 21st century.

Public opening event:

Monday 24 September 2018, 6-8pm
Free, booking recommended
