Ithuba Arts Gallery, Johannesburg
'Photo Colour Services'
With Eastside Projects
13th March to 18th April 2015
Photo Colour Services (PCS) takes its name from a redundant photography lab and is a series of international exhibitions, workshops, presentations and ultimately a publication.
It began with the discovery of 481 photographic negatives
in a disused lab in Johannesburg in 2007.
This exhibition at Ithuba gallery, although 8 years later, is a beginning for the project. Using the original branding,
PCS was re-established as a research, rather than production lab. The show presents all 481 photographs,
as they were found, in print development trays and invited
the audience to explore and interrogate their possible
meanings and narratives.
Alongside this a number of organisations and institutions
in Johannesburg worked with this material during the
exhibition and will continue to do so ahead of further
iterations of the project.
