EXHIBITION MAPH PLUTA-Shadowing matrix-2


8 Jun 2024 – 21 Jun 2024

As artists, academics and curators, Izabela Pluta and Kiron Robinson work across photography, sculpture, installation, and video. Both artists bring an experimental methodology to their practice – whether that be through scanning, layering, cropping, altering or rephotographing – preferring to work in a controlled studio environment to bring new meaning to existing photographs.

In this exhibition both Pluta and Robinson explore their own and public archives which are then decontextualised and recontextualised to bring past ideas into a contemporary context. For the curators of Built photography, Hollow playfully capsizes the idea of being built and examines the emptiness that can lie underneath the surface of a photograph.

In 2023/2024, the Museum of Australian Photography acquired works by Izabela Pluta and Kiron Robinson.

Curated by Angela Connor, MAPh Senior Curator.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication that acts as a compendium to the works, augmenting the exhibition with artist bios, extended texts, imagery and an interview between Izabela and Kiron that in itself becomes a construction of prose.
