Untitled Actions for Stages

Untitled Actions (For Stages) 2014
Silver gelatin prints, dimensions variable.
Stages is a collaborative project by Clare Rae and Simone Hine. Both artists follow in the tradition of feminist art practices, using their own body to examine broader ideas related to the conditions of feminine representation. Stages takes the Rosina Auditorium at the Abbotsford Convent as a catalyst for the production of new work. Both artists will bring their own aesthetic and line of questioning to this very particular space. Together, Rae and Hine present works that are defined by the space, whilst also contributing to a redefinition of the space.
Stages was presented at Boxcopy in Brisbane in March 2014 as part of the Queensland Festival of Photography. Download the exhibition catalogue (PDF).
A selection of photographs from Untitled Actions (for Stages) was also included in the group exhibition Performing Absence at West Space in July 2014.
