Exhibition: The Landscape Revisited
Anne Zahalka’s new exhibition at the city gallery in Albury- MAMA – till Sunday 5th November 2017
From the gallery’s website:
Anne Zahalka rewrites the Australian myth with her latest photography exhibition, The Landscape Revisited.
Photographed in Beechworth, the exhibition explores the imagery of iconic Australian paintings including works by Frederick McCubbin, Tom Roberts, Jane Sutherland, Sidney Nolan and Russell Drysdale.
These images are carefully staged to reconstruct the celebrated paintings – now with a different cast, exploring ideas of belonging, displacement, discrimination, exile and home.
Working with iconic images from Australian art Anne Zahalka explores the construction of a less romantic, less masculine and less Anglo-centric image of Australia.
Photographs, original collages and related material show an ongoing exploration by the artist that spans over 30 years.
This MAMA Exhibition curated by Rita Lazauskas.
