Talks: Photography and Performance

August is almost upon us and we have an exciting performance based talk for you this month. Our free talk in Brighton will be on the topic of Photography and Performance, hopefully exploring the paradoxical relationship between performer and photographer and how this can effect the language of both mediums. Our speakers include Jocelyn Allen and Kate Radford who will both be talking about their experiences working with both mediums. We will also be lucky enough to be showing the debut performance of ‘26.2’ by Kate Radford, documenting her journey from the accidental signing up to the marathon to her completion of it earlier this year.


Tuesday 9th August. Doors at 6pm, kicks off at 7pm.  The Old Market, Brighton. 

Free Entry.

Jocelyn Allen (b.1988 Birmingham, UK) is an artist who mainly works with photography, video and performance. She primarily uses herself within her work, whilst exploring the themes of representation, self-esteem, anxiety and identity.

Jocelyn has a BA in Photographic Art from the University of Wales, Newport (2007-2010) and an MA in Photography from the London College of Communication (2013-2014).

Career highlights include exhibiting at the Guernsey Photography Festival (2011), representing the UK in the Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean (2011), being selected for FreshFaced+WildEyed 2015 at The Photographers’ Gallery in London, and exhibiting photography and video work at the British Council in Delhi, India (2015).

Kate Radford




Kate is a writer, performer, and online activist from Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. Her work has lead to her to perform in various capacities around Europe in the past few years, and is now firmly rooted in the North, and is developing her solo performances projects, looking particularly at using theatre as a platform for women’s voices and political purpose.
Using a mixture of snapshots taken while training and completing the marathon and a number of heavily constructed images posted to social media to show her progress, Kate challenges the recording and representation of experience and explores the use of photography in the building of identity with specific reference to the female body.
