From 17th to 22nd January, Camden Image Gallery in London presents an exhibition of works on Polaroid, analog photography and digital prints by Mihaela Andreea Andrei. The central feature of “Scattered Dreams” is a previously unseen display of photographs taken by the artist. The exhibition will highlight Andreea’s unwavering pursuit of Polaroid photography -her continuous journey throughout the years with her camera. For the first time she includes a small selection of chemical manipulated Polaroids by using different chemicals like: bleach, detergent, window cleaner and so on. The exhibition is also a reminder of Raluca Rosu‘s influence on photographers and filmmakers, and a celebration of her fashion icon statement. These works embody the natural act of trying to take a picture – they are pretty simple in that way. They are images of friendship, of love, of an engaged life, and of melancholy too. They record the transformation of life into art.
Some photographs were taken by the artist as she travelled in Romania, in her grandma’s backyard, in Teleorman.
I have chosen “Scattered Dreams” because the photographs come from opposite angles. Just as our dreams are scattered sometimes in life. I have also chosen to expose some photos in Raluca Rosu‘s memory, her inheritance should be taken on each one of us whether if we know her or not.
The exhibition will run for 1 week between 17th – 22nd January 2020 – Camden Image Gallery from 11AM – 6PM.
The opening night (private view) will take place on 16th January 2020 from 6PM – 8PM. See event here.
