Latimer & Caines

Christine Lucy Latimer, Cliff Caines

SMASH proudly presents new work by artists Caines and Latimer. Their works negotiate old and new photographic processes, producing uncanny hybrid artifacts. Caines presents a custom-built 19th century stereoscopic cabinet. Viewable within the mahogany cabinet is a 21 minute 3-D video portrait of Derrick Caines (born with Down Syndrome, later diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease). Working with found antique negatives, Latimer’s gelatin-silver prints (processed with home-brewed coffee-chemistry) manipulate the nostalgic and re-configure abandoned histories.
