Stages

If you’re up Brisbane way, please pop into Boxcopy to view my latest exhibition, Stages, a collaborative project with Simone Hine.

We have approached the exhibition in a collaborative way: Simone and I have each created a new work that responds to the Rosina Auditorium at the Abbotsford Convent. Using the same space as a set for both artist’s work, I have produced a series of black and white photographs (one of which is above) whilst Simone has produced a multi-channel video installation. We have brought our own aesthetic and line of questioning to the chosen space, creating a dialogue between different ways of seeing, understanding, and representing the female body. The convergences mark a shared history of art, whilst the divergences mark our individual response to the room in which the works were produced.

Stages is part of the Queensland Festival of Photography, and runs from the 5th – 26th of April 2014.

Stages has been featured on the Abbotsford Convent blog, alongside an overview of other projects I’ve photographed at the Convent.

Melbourne Now

Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 6.55.42 pm

I’m thrilled to announce the opening of Melbourne Now at the National Gallery of Victoria, this Friday the 22nd of November. For the exhibition I’ve created a series of photographs and a stop-motion video work, which are installed on the ground floor of NGV Australia, at Federation Square. The work was captured at NGV International, in the public and private spaces of the building.

There is a free iPhone app and ebook available on iTunes, with essays and information on all the artists in the show.

True self 2

True Self has launched and all the collaborative works look great! Head to the auction website Gala Bid to see the range of works and place a bid.
A limited edition run of A3 prints are also available at the exhibition, for $85 each. Head to the GPO before Sunday 23rd June to catch the show.
Here’s my collaborative photograph with Dylan Martorell, and a little blurb on what it’s about:

For their True Self collaboration, Dylan Martorell and Clare Rae have created an image that combines their interests in costuming and gesture to capture a positive self-image summoned from childhood fantasies and mythologies. For the project they created a series of costumes using various found materials gleaned from the streets of Brunswick. The resulting image is part speculative Sci-fi fantasy, part modern day ethnography, with a nod to childhood heroes of DIY, Stig of the Dump and Catweazle.
