Willem de Rooij - Arnolfini

A new exhibition, by Dutch artist Willem de Rooij, featuring a politically-charged photographic work in an installation that explores themes of individuality, protest and representation.

Index: Riots, Protest, Mourning and Commemoration (as represented in newspapers, January 2000–July 2002), 2003, consists of 18 large panels each featuring a selection of photographs cut from newspapers. De Rooij is interested in how these images are selected for global distribution in the news media, the ways in which people are presented in protest, and how they stage themselves in front of a camera. The installation presents a large selection of global political struggles, but despite being taken in different geographical and political situations and contexts, there are similarities between the different images presented. Without the newspaper headlines and captions, the formal qualities of the photographs become apparent, inviting a closer look at representation and drawing together the subjects that the title of the work indicates: riots, protests, mourning and commemoration.

Free. Friday 21 November 2014 to Sunday 08 February 2015, 11:00 to 18:00.

Arnolfini, 16 Narrow Quay. Bristol BS1 4QA
