    Abstract

    On going research that explores the global spread of consumerism and the aesthetic regime that accompanies it. Jandrell spent 8 years working on this project, taking photographs in constructed leisure environments around the world. The six images chosen looked at how constructed spaces of consumerism such, as Theme Parks, work within consumerist experiential culture as a way of setting up a discussion on representation, realism and narrative.

    The development of this body of work has been recognised in its inclusion in this exhibition alongside contemporary artists of international standing. For this exhibition, a selection of 6 of Jandrell’s photographic works was made by the curators. These were printed to approximately 10x8 foot on canvas and installed as a part of the installation on the Alter Meesplatz in Mannheim, a public space open to Fotofestival visitors and the general public alike. This exhibition responded to highly pertinent issues facing photography today, and as such is in the forefront of its field.

    Curators Vvork were invited to show a collection of images in the form of an installation in public space, thus creating a walk-in, three-dimensional blog on the Alter Meßplatz in Mannheim, Germany.

    The exhibition was open to the public, with several events taking place to commemorate its opening and was reviewed in German press and photographic journals.
