Ffotogallery is delighted to present What is lost…what has been, a solo exhibition of photographic works by Welsh artist John Paul Evans, taking place from 17 June – 3 September 2022.

The exhibition explores the autoethnographic process of weaving one’s personal history into a visual dialogue, analysing ideas of belonging/otherness, mourning and melancholia in relation to the photographic family album.

John Paul Evans writes about his work:

What is lost…what has been is a visual soliloquy to ‘absent friends’, people I considered my family. The works are also a coda to my installation in the sweet bye & bye which was a photographic cathexis in response to the death of my closest friend in Dec 2017. […] The concept of memorialisation is particularly pertinent to photography. We try to capture our loved ones through the photographic moment, but the attempt to freeze/capture/isolate time only testifies to the fact that this moment has passed, ‘this has been’.”

Ffotogallery’s Director Siân Addicott comments:

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to showcase John Paul’s wonderful work as the first exhibition in my new role as Director. Following its successful run at the Mission Gallery in Swansea, What is lost… what has been will be expanded at Ffotogallery to include some additional works which will be on display for the first time in Cardiff. Coinciding with the exhibition will be a programme of events and collaborations with local LGBTQ+ artists, groups and communities.”
