This image by Magdalena Bors grabbed me for various reasons, but I really need to check this exhibition before I leave.
Friday 2 May to Saturday 7 June 2008
Tue – Fri: 12.00 – 7.00pm, Sat & Sun 10.00am – 6.00pm
Gallery 1 & 2
MAGDALENA BORS, MARK KIMBER, ANDREW MAMO, ALEXIA SINCLAIR, SIMON STRONG
Vivid, complex and magical, the works in this exhibition abandon the traditional realm of the photographic – the real world – to conjure images of the fantastical. From Magdalena Bors’ fairytale scenes to Alexia Sinclair’s regal women of history and Simon Strong’s dreamscapes; from Andrew Mamo’s phantasmagoria to Mark Kimber’s landscapes of the imagination, it is an odyssey of the fabulous. The result of highly skilled and detailed construction these enchanted scenes are either created as theatrical settings and then photograph or pieced together from hundreds of photographic fragments.
Mark Kimber is represented by Stills Gallery, Sydney
Simon Strong is represented by John Buckley Gallery, Melbourne and King Street Gallery on William, Sydney.
