Shadows in Black and White

Now open at The Skywalk Gallery at The Station is an exhibited entitled Shadows in Black and White: An FCP Reunion Exhibit and curated by Kara Trapdoor, featuring photographic works by Burk Bode, Maloe Vansant (top image), Zach Larsen (middle image), Chaos Richard, Josie Anderton (bottom image) and Sugar Silverstar. These artists, and others, were part of a now mostly-inactive group, Flickr Collaborators and Posers (or FCP), and have come together for this reunion show, featuring mostly black and white or monochromatic images.

A strong interplay between light and shadow plays a hand in many of the works, particularly in those by Chaos Richard, Burke Bode and Maloe Vansant. Zach Larsen seems to have good-naturedly wrapped his portrait at The Far Away, entitled Wind, around a curving wall (the gallery space lacking any alternative), but I'm not sure that's to the benefit of the image, which ends up with a fisheye perspective. Many, but not all, of the works are for sale—Josie Anderton's for only L$5. The exhibition will remain on display for an extended time, and is situated immediately next to the installation Technochory by Bryn Oh and Sina Souza (about which I've written here).


  1. Thanks for visiting and blogging this Ziki! All the artists did a great job and it was fun to see some old FCP members at the opening party. The Skywalk gallery space is somewhat challenging but so far all the artist have worked well into it and the exhibits make for an interesting and enjoyable stroll down the gridiron halls of the sim. Good to see you there again!

  2. Thanks, Kara, for curating the exhibition and providing a great space for artists!
