Preservation sees Kate Beckingham continue her investigation into the space between the real and un-real in the photographic. Here, using the space of the window, Beckingham uses light and solid forms to react to the manipulated landscape within the photographic image. Specifically, the space of the window acts as a literal arena that Beckingham uses to stage her exploration. Firstly, by translating the virtuality of the image space into real space using the sculptural arch way, then returning to the malleable and fluid through the use of the coloured window decal that reflects coloured light back into the window space. These three elements (light, thing and photographic) come together within the window to exist as both complementary and in opposition to each other, allowing for consideration on the nature of the real.
