Lydia Wegner’s latest photographic experiments in the studio reveal a joyful manipulation of everyday materials and light. In Swing, Wegner steps away from her earlier photographs of recognisable objects poised before the camera. Instead, she positions her props under tinted flashlights and refocuses our gaze on vibrant geometric shapes, shadows, sheens and textures, with striking tonal effects. Swing combines the artist’s intuitive approach to assembling her delicate constructions with physical sites of play, such as community playgrounds. Taking inspiration from shiny slippery dips, angular seesaws and undulating swings, Wegner echoes these functional and cheerful forms with jagged steps of colour, rippling papers and ricocheting light.
