3 MARCH – 1 APRIL

ANNE ZAHALKA

showing Wild Life at Turner Galleries  Wild Life

 

Anne Zahalka is one of Australia’s most highly regarded photo-media artists, having exhibited extensively 30 years. Her work has often explored cultural stereotyping – she deconstructs familiar images and re-presents them to allow other figures and stories to be told that reflect on cultural diversity, gender and difference within Australian society.

The images from wild life depict dioramas from the American Natural History Museum taken over a number of years with medium format film. The camera is placed centrally to the constructed scene, it captures and records this illusionary space melding fauna, flora and painted background seamlessly into a believable scene. In Zahalka’s process, the negatives are scanned and contemporary elements are introduced digitally to disrupt these preserved pristine worlds. 

22 March – 7 April Artist-in-Residence

Christophe Canato shopfront

French-born and Perth-based Canato brings a background in fashion and commercial photography to his work as an artist in photomedia. His photographs are not portraits but portrayals. It is not biography that they unfold so much as a state of being.
Canato is researching towards a new body of work: the place of the male gender in our contemporary western countries within diverse contexts such as politics, religion, science or sexual orientation. In 2016 his work has been exhibited at the Singapore M1 fringe festival, Turner Galleries and he has been a finalist for a number of art prizes such as the Print Award, Mandorla Art Award and Busselton Art Award.

July HYPO by  Mathew Dickson

Graduating from Central in 2013, Mathew Dickson’s multimedia practice is grounded in Bruno Latour’s scientific  theory of Blackboxing in which technology, through its  ongoing success, renders itself invisible.

Mathew examines the symbiotic relationship between technology and the uncanny. Drawing upon parapsychology and everyday technological objects to inform his work, Mathew’s resulting installation summons technology to reveal its supernatural nature.  photo by Max Kordyl
