The British photographer has spent ten years exploring structures of power and control in the so-called global War on Terror. The exhibition features photographic, video, and installation work focusing on the measures deemed necessary to protect citizens from the threat of international terrorism. It also explores the far-reaching effects of such methods of control on issues of security, secrecy, legality, and ethics.
Clark’s work is associated with the United States’ response to international terrorism. His engagement with military and state censorship defines the secrecy and denial around these subjects.
Through his documenting photographs Clarks reveals how the unexpected connections between those who exercise control and those who are subject to it bring this covert torture trail to a human level.
