The Streets Where Foxes Hide
Niagara Falls Projects presents Reinis Lismanis
‘The Streets where Foxes Hide’ is an on-site exhibition of new mixed-media works drawing upon a myriad of sources including the artist’s everyday, urban environment and the studio, recent politics, and conventions of aesthetics. The context of photography remains important to Lismanis’ practice; a medium arguably unique in the extent of its straddling of art and non-art spheres. The works presented bear the marks of their own creation, employing recycling, fragmentation, and reflexivity to draw attention to their authorial, ontological and practical boundaries. In explicating margins, Lismanis aims to position his work within a wider context of politically and technologically conditioned activities.
Niagara Falls Projects is a Brighton artist-led project space and exhibition platform founded in 2017 by James William Murray and Martin Seeds.
Tom Laver (1988) is Assistant Curator at Southampton City Art Gallery.
