Jacky Redgate’s four-decade practice has explored the conceptual boundaries of visual perception through photography and sculptural installation. Redgate’s work considers the spaces between perception and representation, traversing the phenomenological divides between how we see the world and how we understand it.

In this photograph, from the series Life of the System, the readymade object of a vintage mirrored travelling case is suspended in a black void, creating what Ann Stephen calls a ‘spatial conundrum… that tests the parameters of what photography can be and do’.
