The gallery is pleased to present a new series of work by Judith Lyons. Produced for her MA at Camberwell College of Art, the black and white photograms in the Lacunae series were created in a makeshift darkroom Lyons set up in the basement of the London Neurodegenerative Diseases Brain Bank at King’s College London. They were made using scientific glassware used in the preparation and analysis of human brain tissue for research into neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
The work was the culmination of 18 months of practice based research carried out within the Brain Bank, during which Lyons was exploring ideas of materiality, mortality and temporality. In addition to this work, Lyons also produced a small series of Chemigrams printed with human brain tissue as well as microscopic images taken on the Brain Bank’s microscopes and other photograms.
Judith Lyons is a photographic artist living and working in London. A graduate of Central Saint Martin’s and the London College of Communication, Judith’s work reflects her fascination with the natural world and with cycles of birth, growth, decay, death and rebirth.
