22 October - 8 November| EMMA HAMILTON | The Sculptor's Photograph
The Sculptor’s Photograph
seeks to interrogate the relationship between sculpture and photography. Mimicking the practice of Constantin Brancusi, who photographed his sculptures, Emma Hamilton’s photographs present her own view of his works through the camera lens. Taken in black and white film, the photographs harness light and shadow to create a dramatic alternative set of ‘documentation’. The images become works in their own right, revealing moments that we cannot see within the physical work. Hamilton has photographed Brancusi's works in a reconstruction of the artist's studio in Paris, his photographic prints in the archives of the Pompidou Centre and travelled to Romania to capture The Endless Column
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. This project is supported by the 2014 City of Melbourne Arts Grants Program.
22 October - 8 November| EUGENIA RAFTOPOULOS| Scratching the Surface
In Scratching the Surface
Eugenia Raftopoulos examines the meditation of feminine identity and the impact of visual media on individual identity. This is realised as a series of figurative paintings using motifs of cavities, blockage, emptiness and elements of abstraction as metaphor to manifest a psychologically charged response to the superficial aspects of an image driven society.
