Gorker gallery’s exhibition ‘With Love’ features photographs and a video installation by Luiza Sá, Hana Davies and Cristine Leone. I wasn’t able to get to the opening night because I was seeing a film at the French Film Festival, so I came the next night.

The photos show scenes of everyday life, with women conversing and inhabiting domestic spaces. One of the best groupings has one photograph of a huge concert crowd above with a shot from the point of view of a women looking down her body under a sheet or blanket, with an elegant symmetry of ribs and hips under smooth skin. Some of the works are collages of polaroid style small images that form a larger image.

A small room in one corner features 3 video works. The largest screen features a naked young woman lying prone on a beach on the edge of the water, with the swell washing over her. The smallest is the most intriguing. A gold glitter box with a hinged lid opens to reveal a small screen showing a woman bathing with goldfish. The miniature scale frames the viewer as a giant voyeur.

It’s the first time Gorker has exhibited photography (there was a video based show last year) and it’s worth seeing. The show runs until Sunday 29 March.
