The series and exhibition Quotidian Metropolis offers contemplation on present-day metropolitan centres and how they must adapt to current stimuli and simultaneously grapple with their past identities. The images investigate themes of pedestrian transience and cultural identity in man-made environments. The areas were physically surveyed by Céleste Cebra as a meditation upon the multitude of liminal and transitory spaces. The works also inspect building façades as markers of an area’s identity and signifier of a structure’s purpose.
Well-established cities and towns offer fascinating records of times past and bear the visible traces of previous and present inhabitants. Situated in the contemporary world these are places where the quotidian collides with the historical.
The works are displayed in two separate areas, the first area is comprised of all of the medium format film photographs and the second of the digital photographs.
