After being a curator at XOYO for a year and a half Alisa Phommahaxay went on to become a freelance curator and began to develop her own website, The Alisa Gallery, to promote emerging artists in London and Pairs.
After living in France and now based in London, Alisa has gone on to create her first exhibition from the online gallery. Club Photos: London X Paris consists of photographers from both cities that got together and were given a theme, to create work around the subject of Clubbing.
The exhibition won’t consist of your generic nightclub photographs however, but will testify as signs and expressions of a story about transient times in our society, to capture the energy and essence of the subject within a nightclub.
Taking inspiration from Nan Goldin and Wolfgang Tillman’s “Portrait of a Generation” the photographs depict a variety of different personalities styles and attitudes showing a mad desire of freedom and loosing themselves in the moment. The photographers aimed to find beauty within this ordinary setting and allow an aesthetic to emerge within the spontaneity.
In 2014, Alisa is hoping to put on another exhibition in Laos with an exchange between French and Laotian artists at the French Embassy.
From the 17th of October till the 17th of November
Thursday 17th of October 6-9pm
Address: 28 Field St, London, UK WC1X 9DA
