Lines of Force…, curated by Nicholas Tsoutas, Sydney College of the Arts, Rozelle 15 April – 2 May 2016
An installation involving projections, video, prints and vitrine with objects and artefacts from work made in Morocco.
‘Standing on the threshold of paths, passages, stairwells and doorways, I am held in a state of suspension and stillness, ‘of hesitation, temptation, desire, security, welcome and respect’ (from Gaston Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space).
Travelling through the vast and ancient landscape of Morocco, El Magrib – (the far west), I felt I was between two worlds, gazing at a place so geographically, historically and culturally distinct from my own. I wanted to make images that would record these differences while reflecting on the inherent photogenic tropes and clichés that come with this territory.
