Open 11am - 5pm Fri - Sun 6-21 May 2017,
opening Friday 5 May 6-8pm
Expanded Photography shows the work of artists Jack Banduch, Yvette Hamilton, Matt James, Noelene Lucas, Katherine Scott, Sardar Sinjawi, Ioulia Terizis, Amanda Williams and Julian Woods.
Expanded Photography reflects on relationships between the virtual space of the photographic image and the live space in which it is located. It shows the work of artists whose practices explore such spatial relationships or otherwise reflect on the nature of photography, whether from the primary position of a photographer or that of an installation artist.
The exhibition is designed by Articulate to support the interdisciplinary potential being explored within artpractices that are sometimes also more discipline-specific. It is also designed to explore ways in which the spatial concerns of Articulate can engage with the photographic concerns being emphasised by many exhibition around Sydney during Head On.
|Yvette Hamilton Lightness #1 2016. 'Lightness' is a series of diptychs that are reductive self-portraits which contemplate the idea of the double. The left-hand image is an animated lightbox and the right-hand image is a photograph of the lightbox.|
Noelene Lucas, Breath, 2013 (video still - see part of moving image here)
'Breath' is not really a photograph, as it first seems. It is included in this exhibition because the surprising arrival of a breeze during the making of the video shifts attention from the content to the medium, making visitors realise the dog is still because it in no longer alive, not because it is a photograph. .
