Weep not by Day is my latest photographic series, studying the relationship between melancholic dispositions, the night and the lives of adolescent women. The series acts as a crossover of old world and new world depictions of sadness, taking inspiration from the likes of John Dowland, Wong Kar Wai, Sam Taylor Wood, Jean Luc Goddard, King Dude, William Wordsworth, Shakespeare and Freud. I attempted to create a compiled study of apathy, cynicism and Dolefulness which also explores the notion of the night being a somewhat multifaceted force or entity, which has the power to control as well as console us.
I shall be exhibiting the series as part of the Exposure24 Graduate exhibitions, taking place at the Frameless Gallery, London- Clerkenwell Green (18th-24th June). Prints shall be for sale, as well as postcards.
Private View: 18th June, 6pm

Bankleer’s works and projects are distinguished by the use of an exceptionally wide range of media and formats and the employment of different formal languages. The group’s activities defy easy classification and assignment: the spectrum extends from performances in public space and video installations, through sculptures and drawings, to editorial and curatorial projects. Almost all their works share an immediate reference to political and social developments, addressing current issues from a perspective defined by bankleer’s anti-capitalist views and their critique of economic structures. This monograph features in depth essays on the collective’s work as well as an annotated image section, which highlights bankleer’s recent projects and deployments.
