arc one gallery, melbourne

29th June – 24th July 2010


A series of exhibitions examining the relationship between art, it’s repositories and the audience.

From the lush and opulent interior of the National Portrait Gallery in London, to patrons gazing at the walls of the Art Gallery of NSW, The Way Things Appear investigates the function of the art site as tourist space by encouraging the viewer of her work to consider the place each individual visitor holds in these spaces. The works are a mixture of carefully composed photographs and snapshots that recount the interactivity between the viewer, the space and the artwork.

“It is and exchange of gazes between the subjects represented within the artworks and the viewers depicted which is complex and multi-layered. This interplay incorporates the viewer and creates a dialogue between our own engagement with art and that of the audience”.
