This October Gasket presents a new photographic exhibition
curated around the theme of time, space and perception.
The exhibition will feature 5 artists from distinct backgrounds
and conceptual positions; Nancy Clemo, Diego Ferrari,
Sally Hart, Arianna Lodeserto and Helen Saunders.
The work of these artists utilises a diverse range of
photographic practices, from traditional film photography
through collage, digital manipulation and computer
Building on Gasket’s exploration of the role of context within
exhibition space, Leap-Second will be exhibited in 2 different
locations over subsequent weeks.
The exhibition will be shown from 1-5 October in
Marylebone and from 7-13 in Bermondsey, with grateful
support from the Bermondsey Square Community Fund.
Time has an ability to be both precise and supple. It can define a moment, an era or an existence; it
can be relative and absolute; it can be experienced collectively or individually, always describing our
relationship with space, places and people, with nature and the city.
Despite its constant presence, the perpetual tick and tock, time has the ability to drift out of alignment.
The leap second is a shift, a slight jump to realign our place within solar time. It might be so small that
we don’t notice its introduction, yet it defines our place within a wider universe.
Photography has a unique ability to echo this duality. Its ability to both freeze and stretch a moment,
to change our perception of the world around us, is at the heart of this exhibition. Each of the artists
encourages us to experience space and relationships at a different velocity. They freeze and stretch,
pulling apart and reconfiguring our understanding of the difference between what we see and what we
Leap-Second explores the in-between - those instants that might affect us unconsciously; it draws
attention to moments that slip our notice, focusing our gaze on the relationships between time, space
