David Birkin: Compound Ghosts – Telegraph

From the series ‘Confesssions’ Photo: DAVID BIRKIN
David Birkin works with photography and performance to recount the ephemeral. His interest lies in the overlap between the two, where the life of the artwork exists in two places at once –first via the original event, and second within the visual echo or trace it leaves behind on a single two-dimensional image. Often these events are constructed by Birkin, but he is equally adept when drawing from history, plumping his concept until it positively glows with allusions. The result is a body of work that teases our struggle and fascination with limits – of perception, existence, knowledge and death.
