A beautifully-realised photographic series, featuring performance artists and their work, set against the backdrop of Morecambe.
Becoming an Image took place over four days in August 2010 in Lancaster and Morecambe, as part of DIY 7, a Live Art Development Agency initiative developed in collaboration with Nuffield Theatre and LANWest. Becoming an Image was a collaborative site-specific project exploring the relationship and transition between and from body-based performance into sculpture and photography.
Internationally-renowned artist Manuel Vason worked with seven established artists from across the world. The artists spent time in Morecambe, exploring the bay and some iconic locations, including Morecambe's stunning but derelict Winter Gardens.
The result is a beautifully-realised photographic series, featuring the artists and their work, set against the backdrop of Morecambe. Vason and the collaborating artists worked as a group, both experimenting individually and leading both in front and behind the camera. The group experimented with video and explored different possibilities of making images using alternative mediums to photography.
Manuel Vason collaborated with artists Alexandra Zierle and Paul Carter, Florence Peake, Georgie Read, Lorena Rivero de Beer, Mandy Romero and Michele Outram.
