Join artist Jack Latham at Colonnade House as he discusses the inspiration behind his BPF18 project, exhibited at our Worthing Hub.
Latham takes inspiration from Oscar Wilde’s play The importance of Being Earnest, to create a series of images depicting youth culture in Worthing. This work will explore how a new generation have to navigate and reconcile two separate identities in a digital age. Born after the democratisation of the internet, what does it mean to grow up with two versions of yourself, the curated digital self and the ‘real’ self?
Alongside producing this body of work, Latham has been giving tutorials to photography students at Northbrook MET College during the autumn term as well as running a small project with them.
This body of work by the students will be previewed at Colonnade House after Latham’s talk from 7PM.
