In November 2007 Stefanie Reichelt started ArtCell Gallery which is located in the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Research Institute (CRUK CRI), in the heart of the scientific community of Cambridge. The institute carries out world-class research to improve our understanding of cancer and find out how to prevent, diagnose and treat different kinds of cancer. The exhibitions at ArtCell aim to bring art into the institute for Stefanie's colleagues, patients at Addenbrookes Hospital as well as the general public.

CamIris – Journeys
08 May - 30 June 2010

An exhibition by CamIris, Cambridge Women's Photography Group. From the documentation of a physical journey walked during the Blue Moon period of December 2009, to a journey following the transformation of physical matter into female forms: A unique and exciting viewpoint has been taken by each member on Journeys. One member's work was conceived in collaboration with research scientists to reflect and celebrate the journey of the research process; while another's shows the three-stage journey we all take from birth to death in the form of a triptych. Meanwhile, we also see images of the absurd and out of place. Another journey consists of images, using scanned old photographs, telling part of a Holocaust story. Images of shoes tell their own stories of the journeys made in different parts of the world. Natural fractals on a Eucalyptus tree follow a journey of transformation into landscape spaces. The photographic media vary from digitally manipulated images, inkjet prints on canvas and sustainably sourced handmade paper to projected and hand printed images.

For this special event, CamIris and the all female Cambridge a capella group, Women of Note, have teamed up to celebrate their respective fifteenth and sixteenth anniversaries. This collaboration not only celebrates the continuing success of these two women's groups but also creates a fantastic environment of pleasure for ear and eye.

As a prelude to their concert at the Arbury Community Centre on 14th May, Women of Note will sing at the exhibition opening of Journeys. Likewise, CamIris will also be showing some of their photographic work at the Arbury concert, including photographs of the choir taken by CamIris member Stefanie Reichelt.

Exhibition Opening Saturday 08 May 2010, 2pm-5pm

with a special performance by Women of Note, at 3pm and 3.45pm

CamIris came together as part of Signals-Festival of Women Photographers in 1994. It has since organised two very successful conferences at Wysing Arts and published limited edition books. It holds exhibitions, conferences and workshops and has exhibited work by group members, who also curate the shows. The group meets regularly and provides support for women who are interested in photography.
