FOREWORD
The Body Politic
Guest edited by Drew Pettifer

What connects these artists is their engagement with the body as a site of encounter, whether this is through bodies on display or through implied bodies (either within the artwork or those of the audience). Many address the politics of representation, directly exploring how artists engage with questions of gender, sexuality and race; markers of identity that are anchored in various ways to the body and which can see the body become a site of contestation. But can this kind of art effect change, in particular in relation to sexism, homophobia and racism?

We used to talk about love
Balnaves contemporary: photomedia




Is it possible to surmise the mystery of love or to reveal the emotions it engenders?

From Polly Borland’s playfully dressed-up bodies, replete with sexual suggestion, to Tim Silver’s disintegrating sculpture of a stargazing young man, this exhibition considers the variegated terrain of love’s language – joy, elation, longing, loss, melancholia and memory.

For the first time since 1988, the Belgiorno-Nettis galleries at the Art Gallery of NSW will be architecturally reconsidered to take the viewer on a spatial and emotional journey through love’s language, from beginning to end.

The exhibition includes photography, photomedia, video, collage, sculpture and installation with works by Polly Borland (USA/Aus), Eliza Hutchison (Vic), Paul Knight (UK/Aus), Angelica Mesiti (France/Aus), David Noonan (UK/Aus), David Rosetzky (Vic), Darren Sylvester (Vic), Tim Silver (NSW), Glenn Sloggett (Vic), Grant Stevens (QLD) and Justene Williams (NSW)

Photographic Abstractions



Drawing on MGA’s nationally significant collection of Australian photographs, this exhibition highlights the work of artists who use photography to achieve abstract effects. The images in this exhibition are less concerned with documenting the world as it is, and more interested in using photography to engage the senses, excite the imagination and make the ordinary appear extraordinary.

Chamber Music - publication prototype
June 2011

113 colour plates, 20 x 25cm

This is an un-titled, un-authored project, using the reductive context of no text to place the work within the political landscape of the family snap-shot. Utilising ideas formed by Henry of Hesse in the potential for mutation in decay as a ground for exploring and generating complexity. This publication / work uses the horizontal or chronological expectation as a starting point for the edit and design to displace any chronological reading or sequence and employ a layered cinematic narrative style to create an outcome evocative of volume.

This project is currently under development with further publications to follow.........
