EXHIBITION INCINERATOR Danica Chappell, Haptic Eye series (detail), 2022-23, chromogenic photographs on paper

The light draws along…

20 Apr 2024 – 23 Jun 2024

Artists: Aaron Chirstopher Rees, Alex Walker & Daniel O'Toole, Cassie Sullivan, Danica Chappell, Justine Varga, Kirsten Lyttle, Pierra Van Sparkes, and Talia Smith

This exhibition offers fresh perspectives of photography from contemporary practices. Encompassing still and moving image, installation and sculpture, photography is presented beyond its formal traditions as encrypted images purposefully eluding easy categorisation. The artworks cross genres, resisting a narrow view of how photography is usually perceived.

Extrapolating photography for its potential to manipulate light, anti-lens dogmas, spatial parameters, movement, processes, and phenomenological experiences, the artists utilise camera(less) techniques to blur passive spectatorship into buoyant new forms of engagement. At times, the lens is turned back onto the audience as a form of mirror, both physical and psychological, returning the gaze to reflect on upon past and present.
