"SIMRYN GILL: NATURAL RESEMBLANCE, SOME RECENT PHOTO WORKS"
2000-04-13 until 0000-00-00
EXPERIMENTAL ART FOUNDATION
Adelaide, , AU Australia

The Experimental Art Foundation is pleased to present Simryn Gill's first three major photo series Forest, Vegetation and Rampant. This is the first time that all of Gill's photo-based works have been exhibited together.

Gill's explorations of the connections and complexities between systems of language, botany and geography are the basis for these enigmatic images. The works variously take their cues from the development of concepts of writing and nature; the history of the photograph as an anthropological and scientific device; and the idea of plants as 'humanised' entities.

Simryn Gill was born in Singapore in 1959 and currently lives in Sydney. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki 1998; Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane 1999; Centre for Contemporary Art, Kitakyushu 2000 and Ikon Gallery, Birmingham 2000.

NATURAL RESEMBLANCE is Gill's first major project in Adelaide since LITTERARIA, with Robert MacPherson, a collaboration between the EAF and the South Australian Museum, 1995.

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with texts by London-based Curator, Writer and Editor, Sharmini Pereira; and the artist.
